The fire started near the Albany Covered Bridge and the Kancamagus Highway last weekend, spreading to nearly 330 acres.

Forest officials said rain this week has helped their efforts, and more is forecast for the weekend.

Crews will continue to monitor the fire line and patrol the burned area to ensure there are no hot spots over the weekend.

No structures have been lost or threatened.

It is still unknown how the fire started on Nov. 12. The investigation remains open.
