Officials Expect Arson in Southeastern Ky. Fires

Forest fires are burning around southeastern Kentucky.

Officials describe one in southern Leslie County as very dangerous.

Trees are falling on roads and some near people's homes as forestry officials try to get it under control.

As of Oct. 2, 400 acres had burned in that area.

The situation is made even more difficult to control because of the severe drought in the area.

Like 80-percent of forest fires, forestry officials say they suspect arson.
