Wet Weather Helps With Firefighting Efforts

Rain fell across the state on Wednesday morning and that change in the weather helped crews, battling forest fires across the state.

The wet weather either put out or helped crews gain control of most of the fires.

Hundreds of acres of land caught fire in 12 Kentucky counties on Tuesday. They were burning on both federal and state lands.

Firefighters say most of the raging forest fires were intentionally set.

The U.S. Division of Forestry says it still has a few crews out in the Daniel Boone National Forest, but they say it's just a precautionary measure.
