Contained but not under control. That's how officials describe the battle against the 7500 acre Meridian Fire burning in South Branch Township in Crawford County. Fire crews established a fire break line around 90 percent of the perimeter. 12 homes have been destroyed and dozens of outbuildings have been damaged by the fire. Hundreds of people have been evacuated and there's no telling when they will be allowed to return. Weather conditions look more promising for fire crews as winds die down and humidity rises with the chance for rain later this week.
