El Paso County says crews responded to at least 20 grass fires Saturday afternoon. Most of them, crews believe, were sparked by dry lightning in the area.

One of the largest fires was off Highway 94 and Enoch Road. Six different agencies helped to fight the fire, putting 100 fire fighters on the lines.

No one was hurt, and no structures were damaged or destroyed.

Fire crews are looking into the cause.
