JACKSON -- With resources stretched by wildfires burning in Utah and Idaho, three smokejumpers and a helicopter are working to suppress the latest fire in northwestern Wyoming.

It was estimated to be about a quarter acre then but it wasn't immediately clear how much it had spread by Friday morning.
