The Hardluck Fire in the Shoshone National Forest has been creeping north, toward a few abandoned frontier cabins near Needle Creek.


Forest Spokeswoman Kristie Salzmann says because other wildfires in the West threaten human life and properties, they take precedent.


“There’s only so many people and so many resources that can be utilized within the country to fight fires. And this one, since it doesn’t have the properties at risk, and because it is in such rugged terrain, we are just staying in the monitoring of it right now.”
