Wild Fire Blazes in Natrona County

Natrona County fire crews are battling a 200 acre blaze at the south end of the big horn mountains. The fire was first reported around 5:30 Wednesday afternoon and is burning in rugged terrain 87 miles northwest of Casper. 
 
No homes or other buildings are threatened at this time. However, numerous brush trucks and water tenders are on the scene as well as three 20 person hand crews.

Authorities say the hot, dry and windy conditions are extreme. The entire central portion of Wyoming was under a red flag warning Thursday evening.
