(KSL News) -- Lightning is to blame for a fire burning about 15-miles west of St. George.

The blaze started last night and has burned about 200 acres.

More than 100 firefighters are expected to be out tomorrow along with two Hot Shot crews trying to knock down the flames.

And the forecast doesn't look good -- high temperatures and low humidity will be a challenge to firefighters.
