NOTREES - Lightning sparked two tank battery fires out in Notrees.

The first tank battery went up in flames around 6:30 Thursday night on FM 2019 and Kermit Highway.

The second tank battery sparked up a short time later.

The West Odessa Volunteer Fire Department says only one fire is still burning, but the terrain is too dangerous to get to it.

They're letting the fire burn itself out since nothing is in danger.

They expect to see it smoking for most of the night.
