RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) — Aircraft and hand crews are fighting a wildfire started by lightning about 30 miles northeast of Rawlins.

The fire started Saturday and has burned 34 acres in steep, rugged terrain in the Bennett Wilderness Study Area.

Bureau of Land Management spokeswoman Shelley Gregory said that aircraft and hand crews were fighting the fire on Monday but that fire engines are being sent home because the terrain is too steep for them.

A plane and two helicopters along with smokejumpers from Grand Junction, Colo. and a hotshot crew from Carson City, Nev. have been brought in to fight the fire.

Fire managers are hoping to contain it quickly because of the hot, dry weather.
