More firefighters from state and federal agencies were dispatched as the state mobilized to help about 100 firefighters who responded Tuesday to the fast-moving fire.
A Department of Natural Resources dispatcher said the fire slowed and did not move in the overnight hours.
Officials say the fire threatened about a dozen homes Tuesday and destroyed at least two outbuildings. The fire may have been started by target shooting, igniting dry grass.
