MOUNT HOPE - Firefighters in Idaho are battling more than a 100,000-acre fire, and they are about to get some help from southern West Virginia. Mark Hughes and Virgil Kincaid of the Mount Hope Fire Department will leave Sunday morning with two Beckley firefighters to help those men and women battle wildfires.  Hughes says right now 1,600 homes have been evacuated, and the fire is at zero percent containment.  He says that despite the dangers, their instinct is to help.
