LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management says fire crews are dealing with two small fires in the Mt. Charleston area.

The fires are about an acre each in upper elevation areas near State Route 157 and U.S. 95 off Harris Springs Road.

The BLM says they were started by dry lightning around 3:45 Saturday afternoon.

About 30 to 50 firefighters with the BLM and the U.S. Forestry Service are responding.

No structures are being threatened, and city or county crews have not yet been called in.
