The Nation : Wyoming Fire Contained

September 03, 1985

Firefighters contained a blaze burning more than 6,600 acres in Wyoming's rugged Rattlesnake Hills, while workers in Washington state battled to save houses from a fire that had already left 19 families homeless. In Idaho's Salmon National Forest, 1,000 firefighters, aided by rain, helicopters and bulldozers, launched a major offensive against a 31,150-acre fire. The four-day-old Wyoming blaze, about 50 miles west of Casper, was contained after firefighters extinguished a 40-acre flare-up created when the main blaze jumped fire lines.
