Early Wednesday morning, fire crews are working to contain two grass fires in southern El Paso County.

The grass fires are near the Ray Nixon Power Plant and may have been started by a lightning strike during the early morning storms.

Reports suggest that one fire is only a half acre in size, and the other is a big as four acres.

No homes are threatened at this times.
