(KSL News) -- Strong winds and high temperatures are making things tough for firefighters in Southern Utah.

Lightning strikes started 15 fires in Southwestern Utah yesterday. Crews have been able to keep most of the fires to less than 25 acres.

One of the fires burned a cabin, but no one was hurt and no other buildings have been threatened.

The largest fire they have is just west of Zion National Park, called the Smith-Mesa fire. It burned 350 acres.
