KSL News -- Lightning sparked a fire in Tooele County tonight. The Black Rock Fire is burning in the Tintic Mountains near the border with Juab County.

Flames have blackened about 300 acres so far.

Cloud cover from the storm has helped slow the fire down, and crews have been pulled off for the night.

But there is fear once the storm clears, flames will kick up again.

No structures are threatened.
