(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Trial has been delayed for two juveniles accused of starting the Apex fire that burned more than 30-thousand acres west of St. George last summer.

Investigators say the two 16-year-old boys found and lit matches and sparked a fire they couldn't extinguish last June. The teens face charges of reckless endangerment and causing a catastrophe.

The fire burned more than 30-thousand acres about ten miles south of Dixie National Forest and took about a week to contain.

The trial had been expected to start today, but was continued earlier this week.
