(KSL News) Several wildfires are buring in southwestern Utah tonight.

Lightning strikes last night started almost two dozen fires along the Utah-Arizona border. But good weather and lots of resources have helped firefighters put most of them out.

Three of the worst still burning... The largest, "North Gorge" about 12 miles from St. George, has burned about 27-hundred acres.

The "Powerline Two" fire has burned more than 12-hundred.

And the "Hill Fire" has burned almost one thousand acres.

The fires are not threatening any buildings. They are expected to be contained in the next few days.
