Flames fanned by blustery gusts and fed by desiccated foliage burned some 300 acres of southern Albemarle brush Thursday evening and into Friday morning, county fire and rescue officials said. They ask people to avoid burning anything until next week after more rain showers move through our area.

Heaton said the brush fire was in the vicinity of Gum Hollow Road in Carter County, and that smoke was visible in the surrounding areas.

Officials said the man was one of three hunters who got caught in the wildfire.

Finch-Walker says the blaze in Dewey County has burned about 82,000 acres (331 sq. kilometers).

Officials say Seiling residents should travel north or east - away from the fire.

A top-level management team on Saturday assumed command over crews battling two nearby wildfires after high winds Friday caused the fires to grow to a combined 8 square miles (2,103 hectares) on part of the Cibola National Forest in northwestern New Mexico. An additional fire is located southwest of Vici.
