McDowell County Fire Under Control

The 700-acre forest fire in McDowell county burned for almost two days before firefighters were able to contain it.
Fire investigators say the blaze was started by wind-blown ashes from a partially extinguished debris pile. No injuries or property damage have been reported. Firefighters hoped today's rains would dampen fire dangers across the state.
