(KSL News) -- Lightning touched off more than 25 small wildfires today in southern Utah.

The biggest fire burned 640 acres northwest of St. George, near the Shivwitz Indian Reservation.

This is the same general area where last year's Apex fire burned more than 30,000 acres.

Air and ground crews are fighting the flames. So far no homes are threatened.
