CODY -- Cool and cloudy weather is expected to help firefighters battling wildfires in northwest Wyoming.

At least four wildfires were burning in the area Monday and one has grown to about 3,000 acres, or nearly 5 square miles.

It's burning in the Gros Ventre Wilderness of the Bridger-Teton National Forest. The lightning-caused blaze is being managed for habitat benefits while structures are protected.

Another fire has grown to 218 acres about 50 miles west of Cody and is visible from the East Entrance Road in Yellowstone National Park.

Two smaller fires are burning in remote parts of the Teton Wilderness, one 15 acres and one 30 acres.

No injuries or structure damage have been reported from any of the fires.

Civil Dialogue

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.
