FORT DAVIS (AP) – Firefighters are battling the first major Texas wildfires of the season, covering 20,000 acres in the Davis Mountains, including an area that was struck by uncontrolled burning exactly a year ago.

Former volunteer fire chief Kelly Bryan says no injuries or structural losses were reported late Monday in the fires at the remote Davis Mountain Resort, 175 miles southeast of El Paso.

Texas Forest Service spokeswoman April Saginor says a 10,000 acre fire was burning uncontained Monday night at the Livermore Ranch, within 1 1/2 miles of the resort. Saginor says firefighters had a 9,900 acre blaze at Spring Mountain 60 percent contained Monday night.

The forest service says lightning strikes sparked the fires.

Livermore Ranch was struck by a complex of fires that swept through Fort Davis a year ago.
