Rain, Cooler Weather Help Firefighters in NW Wyo.
CODY, Wyo. (AP) — Rain and cooler weather have slowed the growth of a wildfire that has scorched more than 38 square miles in northwest Wyoming
The Hardluck Fire has been burning in rugged, inaccessible terrain in the Shoshone National Forest about 50 miles southwest of Cody since July 17 when it was started by lightning. Over the past four days, about .70 inches of rain has fallen over the fire, which is 0 percent contained.
Rain and cooler weather also has help crews battling several smaller wildfires burning in mostly remote areas of Yellowstone National Park.
