As the drought continues to linger in the South East, wildfires are now spreading throughout the Blue Ridge mountains, and now into the Bluefield, WV region.
Evacuations have even begun to take place in several sections of the Appalachians.
Emergency personnel are now going door-to-door to evacuate residents in Rutherford County, NC.
Dozens of parks, including the South Mountains State Park are now closed due to the fires.
