Wicked Creek Fire Slowing Down

We have finally gotten some cooler weather, even a little rain, which is making life easier for the firefighters on the WH Complex fires. It has stablized at just over 28,000 acres and is now 40% contained, but the fire managers are settling in for the long haul when it comes to putting the fire out completely; it will take snow or lots of rain to finish it off in the rugged country of the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness. The weather has been advantageous for us, too - the air is much clearer than it was a week ago.
