Gunbarrel and LeHardy fires update, Aug. 9

Wet and cool weather is slowing the spread of the two fires.The LeHardy fire in Yellowstone National Park, at 9,332 acres, received some rain yesterday and will be releasing some resources due to that and the predicted weather.

The Gunbarrel fire just east of Yellowstone, 35,500 acres, did not report any rain yesterday in their news release, but the weather decreased the fire activity. The release says a drying trend is expected on Saturday, while the Weather Service point forecast predicts a 50% chance of heavy rain.
