CHEYENNE — Six wildfires remain active in the Wyoming, but they have been showing little growth in recent days.

Several of the fires are being left to burn on their own because they are in remote areas and don't pose a threat to any major infrastructure or danger to people.

Three fires are burning in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in northwest Wyoming. The largest is the Green Fire at nearly 1,000 acres. About 130 firefighters are battling the fire.

The state's largest fire so far this summer is the Hardluck Fire in the Shoshone National Forest. It has burned more than 24 square miles.

It has been allowed to burn since it was first started by lightning on July 17, but preparations are being made in case the fire continues to grow.

    The major portion of this world is based on the land water and fire. Although fire don't exist apparently but such chemical reaction occur in the surrounding that keep on making their essay writing service that mostly happen in the forest and this reaction when carbon dioxide and hydrogen react and sudden bombardment happen.

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at editors@trib.com, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
