McDowell County Fire Under Control

The state Forest Service says a 700-acre-plus forest fire in McDowell County was started by wind-blown ashes from a partially extinguished debris pile.

The fire was under control and firefighters hoped rains would dampen fire dangers around the state.

The McDowell fire was the largest of several that broke out from the coast to the mountains as winds whipped sparks into larger blazes last week.
