High winds forecast at Helena fire

KXLH photo(HELENA)- Fire managers have a close eye on the weather this morning, as they launch another day of attacking the spreading Corral Fire near Helena.

The fire had burned over 700-acres in just 8-hours by late Monday night. That forced the evacuation of some 200 homes, burning three homes along with some trailers. 

The battle continues this morning, but the weather continues to be the biggest enemy to fire crews. An arriving cold front could drive winds to as high as 40 mph, starting around noon today.
