Firefighters Make Progress

Hulett, Wy –
Firefighters say they are making progress in trying to contain a series of fires near Devils Tower National monument. Spokeswoman Brenda Bowen says they are officially saying that they have the largest fire in the area at 75 percent containment but she says if they can survive a cold front they will be close to 100 percent containment. Bowen says despite their optimism they are ready in case anything changes. Bowen adds that they continue to keep a close watch on several homes and structures that are still threatened by fire.
