ROY -- Crews responded to seven grass fires Thursday morning on the west side of Interstate 15 from 24th Street in Ogden to the Davis County line.

One fire threatened a state liquor store around 5700 South and 1900 West, and another threatened Sacco Produce near 6000 South and 1900 West, said Roy Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Comeau.

Most of the fires were a couple of hundred feet in size and spanned about 7 miles, he said.

Some of the fires may be related, and their cause remains under investigation, Comeau said.

The fires didn't affect traffic on I-15.

About 25 locals firefighters responded from Roy, Riverdale, Ogden, Sunset and Weber fire departments.

The fires were contained about 30 minutes after they were reported.
