Firefighters controlled a fire burning over 6,600 acres in Wyoming’s rugged Rattlesnake Hills, while workers in Washington state battled to save houses from a blaze that had already left 19 families homeless. In Idaho’s Salmon National Forest, an army of 1,000 firefighters, aided by helicopters, bulldozers and rain, launched a major offensive against a 31,150-acre fire. Earlier, another group of firefighters contained a 1,028-acre blaze in Grand Teton National Park in western Wyoming.
