PHOENIX -- Two wildfires began burning northeast of the Valley Thursday night.

The fires, which were started by lightning, are burning in the Four Peaks Wilderness area.

Several Fountain Hills residents called 3TV Thursday evening to say they could see the smoke.

One of the fires has been named the Reno Fire, and has burned about eight acres.

The Forest Service does not yet have a size for the second fire.
