JEFFERSON COUNTY - Lightning Friday evening sparked a wildfire in White Ranch Park that flared up Saturday, according to officials.
Dry weather caused the fire to grow to at least an acre and a half as of 4 p.m. Saturday.
The fire is said to be in a rugged area that is difficult to get to. Volunteer firefighters from at least four different fire departments are on scene working on the fire. Air support has also been called in to assist with the fire.
No structures are threatened but smoke from the fire is visible from the metro area.
