Fire in rural King Pikeville: Officials say more than 300 homes destroyed

A wildfire burning near King Pike, Kentucky, has killed at least 300 people, and the National Guard says it has sent more than 1,000 troops to help the fight.

The fire in the city of King Pike is burning in a mountainous area near the southern border of rural King and rural King counties, according to the National Weather Service.

Officials say the fire is not under control, and more than 2,500 homes have been destroyed, including 300 homes in the rural community of King, which sits on the Kentucky-Tennessee border.
