FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Division of Forestry says it will use bloodhounds to help investigate arson cases as the fall wildfire season begins.

A statement from the agency says it is the first time trained dogs are being used to help with investigations. The initiative is possible through a partnership with the Bell County Forestry Camp. The statement says multiple dogs and handlers will be available to help Division of Forestry officers investigate suspicious blazes.

The fall wildfire season beings on Oct. 1 and runs through Dec. 15.
