Berrien County - There's good news for the firefighters and foresters who have been battling a wildfire in Berrien County since Monday.

Firefighters have it 95 percent contained.

They are continuing to run it into the pond off 10 Mile Bay Road and surrounding it with fire breaks.

So far it's scorched about 500 acres between Nashville and Alapaha.

Firefighters thought they had it contained shortly after it started April 1st, but it re-ignited Monday. They think they'll have it out by Thursday.
