WYOMING COUNTY, WV - A large brush fire is burning in Wyoming County Thursday night (4/24).  The fire is covering around 160 acres on Herndon Mountain near Garwood and Alpoca.  Chris White with the West Virginia Division of Forestry tells us the fire is believed to be arson.  There are no homes in danger at this time, but crews are watching closely.  Fire crews are digging fire lines to keep it from spreading, but they are having a difficult time because hot spots keep rekindling.
