KFSM reports:

A wildfire is now contained near the Buffalo River in Newton County Monday morning (Dec. 11).

According to the National Parks Service, crews are still working to extinguish the fire that’s blazing near Boxley Valley and Kingston along Highway 21 near the Buffalo River.
The Buffalo Outdoor Center has more, including pictures, at its Facebook page.

The National Weather Service in Little Rock issued the following statement:
Weather conditions overnight are not going to significantly impact fire spread or containment. Unfortunately, winds will increase tomorrow and RH values will fall to dangerous levels throughout the day as a cold front moves through the area.

Please use extreme caution across the state tomorrow as fire danger levels will be increased, any spark could lead to a wildfire!
The Arkansas Forestry Commission's website has info on burn bans in effect throughout much of the state (see map above).
