Worland area fire now up to 44K acres and 60 percent containment

    (Worland, Wyo.)The Terek fire is about 60 percent contained, burning approximately 44,000 acres.

    Operations continued throughout Tuesday night focusing on any hot spots along the fire perimeter.  Cooler temperatures are expected today with light wind and partly cloudy conditions occurring later in the day over the fire area.   These cooler temperatures should help decrease fire activity.   Fire crews will continue to secure the perimeter and increase containment as well as begin mop up operations.

    Initial attack resources continue to respond to any additional small fires in the area caused by afternoon thunderstorms.
