Not Much Activity Expected From Wyo. Wildfires
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Cooler temperatures are keeping wildfires in Wyoming in check for the time being.
Officials say they don't expect much activity Thursday on fires burning in remote areas of western Wyoming.
The Alpine Lake Fire in the Shoshone National Forest on the Wind River Indian Reservation and the Butte Creek Fire in the Teton Wilderness both have died down. The two fires have burned about 1,000 acres apiece.
Alpine Lake Fire spokesman Karl Brauneis (brown-YS') says little burning it expected from the fire, which is located between 9,000 and 10,000 feet altitude.
However, Brauneis says the weather is predicted to warm up again Friday, leading to more fire activity.
