PINEDALE, Wyo. (AP) — Residents evacuated by a 400-acre fire burning west of Pinedale are being allowed back home.

Fire managers were letting residents return Thursday night. The Chall Creek Fire, which started Sunday, is 30 percent contained.

The fire had threatened 13 homes but no buildings have been lost. The cause isn’t known.

Meanwhile the fight against a wildfire that once posed a threat to the town of Jackson is ramping down. The 3,400-acre Horsethief Canyon Fire is 83 percent contained. Full containment could come as early as this weekend.

In northern Wyoming, the roughly 8,050-acre Gilead Fire near Buffalo is 47 percent contained. It was started by lightning in the Bighorn National Forest on Aug. 14.
