The U.S. Forest Service is expecting a wildfire at Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area to extinguish itself in the next couple of days as rain moves into the area.

The agency said in a news release the fire started Sunday afternoon in a forested area off Forest Service Road 120 in Lyon County. Firefighters from the Forest Service as well as Eddyville and Kuttawa responded, building a fire break to contain the fire.

Land Between The Lakes Fire Specialist Todd Lerke said the fire is expected to stay within the contained area of about 43 acres.
