ST. LOUIS (AP) - Nearly 100 firefighters are battling a wildfire that has burned more than 1,100 acres in southern Missouri's Mark Twain National Forest.

Forest officials say the blaze was discovered Sunday and continues to grow. About 30 homes and other structures are at risk, officials said Thursday, but so far, no buildings have been damaged and no one has been hurt.

The fire is in a heavily forested area on public and private land, about two miles southwest of the small town of Black, Missouri, 115 miles southwest of St. Louis. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Weather hasn't made things any easier. Conditions have been hot, windy and dry all week, though rain is in the forecast for the weekend.
