Utah fire agencies are currently monitoring two wildfires in southern Utah that have burned a combined total of 9,000 acres of land.

The two fires burning in the vicinity of Beaver and Millard counties have been labeled as the "Rock Path Fire" and "Antelope Fire." Both blazes were started by lightning around 4:30 p.m. on Thursday.

The Rock Path Fire has burned an estimated 6,000 acres, and is 0% contained, according to recent reports on UtahFireInfo.Gov. The Antelope Fire has burned more than 3,000 acres and is also 0% contained.

No structures are currently threatened by either fire, and no evacuations or closures are in place.

A third wildfire later ignited in Millard County: the "Canal Fire," estimated at 200 acres and threatening structures and power lines.
