Rain May Help Forest Fires

Rain, forecast for tonight, should help fire crews battling a fire in the Daniel Boone National Forest.

That fire has already scorched hundreds of acres near the Wolfe County line in Powell County.

Right now, forestry officials say 28 firefighters are on scene making sure it doesn't cross the fire lines.

We're told two more forest fires are also burning in McCreary County.

The Fred fire is about 150 acres, and the Patrick fire is 30 acres. They are burning in an area west of Pine Knot.

Crews from several different districts are on scene battling those flames.
