Wildfire Threatens East Side Of Jackson In NW Wyo.

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Jackson residents are anxiously watching a 2,700-acre wildfire burning south of the ski resort town, but officials say it appears the town will be able to get through the night without any evacuation.

More than 70 firefighters were spending the night on a ridge above Jackson in case the fire moved toward town.

About 1,000 residents have been warned to be prepared to leave in case the Little Horsethief Fire gets too close.

The fire is burning behind Snow King Mountain less than two miles from the town. It was about 10 percent contained Monday night as the fire grew.

More than 100 firefighters aided by three helicopters are battling the fire.

Snow King Resort has closed its summer lift line and trails in the area.
