LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - As hundreds of firefighters continue to battle dozens of wildfires in eastern Kentucky, more crews from WAVE Country are ready to join the fight.

On Wednesday, crews from the Buechel, Highview and Fairdale fire departments packed their gear to head to the front line.

They will join other firefighters from across the state, including the PRP and Zoneton departments.

The wildfires have prompted a state of emergency, but no evacuations have been ordered and no structures have been damaged.
