(KSL News) Wildfires are raging in Utah this weekend.

Three fires are burning right now: One in Spanish Fork Canyon, and two that are burning very closely together in Southern Utah.

Lightning sparked these fires near Enterprise, Utah burning just three miles apart, charring 35-thousand acres. More than 300 firefighters and heavy air and ground equipment are battling this fire.

Lightning also sparked this wildfire in Spanish Fork canyon which has doubled in size and even arced power lines.

More than 200 firefighters are battling the Red Bull fire across more than one-thousand acres of steep slopes.

Fire crews cleared brush along Route 6 as a precaution to keep the fire from jumping highway lanes.

Utah Power officials are at the scene to monitor the power lines.
