The North Carolina Forest Service says two large wildfires burning in the mountains are mostly contained.  Kerry Lathrop in the Region 3 command center tells WCQS a 1,050 acre blaze in Madison County along the North Carolina/Tennessee line is about 80 percent contained.  A 243 acre fire burning in Macon County called the Buck Knob fire is said to be 100 percent contained.  Drier conditions have helped contribute to the fires.  Rain is in the forecast Friday for western North Carolina.
