A fire that burned more than 80–acres near DeBqeque is now out and a firefighter that was hurt is out of the hospital.

Upper Colorado River Interagency Fire officials say the firefighter was airlifted to the hospital Thursday and treated for minor burns.

40 firefighters fought the so called Ash Meat Fire for more than two days to get it under control.

Investigators say it was sparked by lightning on Wednesday.
