Forest fires continue to be a big problem across much of Eastern Kentucky. Forestry officials say six fires are burning in Bell County alone and at least one came dangerously close to some homes.
Forestry officials say they are working ten fires in their coverage area alone. They say most of those are arson. They say they have a good lead as to who may have started the fire that got close to homes in the Bean's Fork area. As far as we know, no arrests have been made and no injuries have been reported.
