LOCAL 8 WEATHER ALERT: As periods of heavy rain and thunder move into East Tennessee between now and the 4th of July Weekend, FLOODING is a concern, due to a saturated ground. Watch for water-covered roads, creeks and streams to run high. Remember TADD, "turn around don't drown."
HARLAN COUNTY, Ky. (WVLT) -- The Kingdom Come State Park closed Sunday due to wildfires that have been spreading throughout the weekend.
About 50 Division of Forestry firefighters and local fire departments are working to contain the blaze.
It originally started outside the park. The fire covers an estimated 465 acres, with just less than half on state park property.
Park rangers and forestry officials closed the park Sunday morning because smoke was covering roads and trails throughout the park.
The winds and hilly terrain caused the flames to jump over some fire lines.
