Officials reopened some parts of Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park as firefighters nearly contained a 1,028-acre fire in the scenic region while workers battled to keep a blaze from a town in Washington state. Firefighters in Oregon took a needed rest as cooler weather and some rain helped extinguish what was left of several fires that had burned thousands of acres. About 500 firefighters completed a fire line around the Grand Teton fire, which had destroyed four cabins and some outbuildings.
