High winds are to blame for spreading forest fires in eastern Kentucky.

A Leslie County blaze destroyed at least three homes, and one person suffered facial burns.

One of the larger fires was reported in Bell County, where more than 100 acres were scorched.

A 30-acre fire in Rowan County kept firefighters busy, and there were significant fires in 28 other Kentucky counties.
