HOT SPRINGS, AR - Hot Springs police say the fire on West Mountain has consumed about 100 acres and is still not under control.

About 100 firefighters are battling the blaze, and water is to be dropped from the air by U.S. Forest Service aircraft this morning.  Bulldozers are also being put to use.

Hot Springs police spokesman Corporal Chris Chapmond says no one has been hurt and no homes have burned.  But the fire is in the vicinity of the city's historic district and can be seen from Albert Pike Road on the west side of Hot Springs.

Chapmond says no homes are in immediate danger.

Police have closed two streets...West Mountain Drive and Prospect Avenue.
