Warm Weather Causes Some Growth in Wyo. Wildfires

Three wildfires that are still burning in Wyoming have grown in the recent warm weather.

Fire managers say the Gray Hills Fire in the Gros Ventre
Wilderness grew to about 720 acres over the weekend. It's burning in an area that had been considered for a prescribed burn and is being used to help encourage the growth of new vegetation.

The Norton Point Fire, about 25 miles north of Dubois, is also being allowed to burn to consume dead trees. It grew by about 400 acres on Friday and Saturday to about 20,500 acres.

And the Hole in the Wall fire near Clark was contained September 15th, but authorities say it will continue to burn - and produce smoke - until snow starts falling. All roads near that fire have reopened.
