A rainy early summer is being credited for the slowest wildfire season in Utah since the state began tracking acres burned in 2002.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands says just 10,200 acres burned in 2015.
The number of fires was fairly typical, but forestry department spokesman Jason Curry says the weather allowed firefighters to contain or extinguish many blazes while they were still small.
The wildfires also appeared later than usual. A late summer blaze called the Quail Hollow Fire forced a neighborhood to evacuate in early September, but even then it burned less than 30 acres.
Other states had a busier fire season. As of Dec. 18, 9.8 million acres nationwide had been scorched by wildfire in 2015.
