A forest fire in northern New Hampshire is down to a little over 100 acres

A forest fire in northern New Hampshire is down to a little over 100 acres and rain yesterday helped firefighters’ efforts, forest officials said. The Bemis Fire is in Crawford Notch State Park, the White Mountain National Forest, and on private land. It’s comprised of three smaller fires. Showers on Sunday helped, but the part of the ground was still dry, “enabling the fire to burn deeper,” the forest service said in a news release. Firefighters are anticipating more dry conditions this weekend.
