(KSL News) -- The trial has begun in St. George for two teenagers accused of starting a wildfire last summer.

Authorities believe the teens were playing with matches, which sparked the Apex Mine fire near St. George.

High temperatures and gusty winds made the fire very difficult to battle.

It scorched about 30-thousand acres.
