Natrona County Fire District

Crews are battling a wildland fire on Coal Mountain Road on the west end of Casper Mountain. Natrona County Fire District spokesman Dave Baker said the fire is estimated to be 200 to 300 acres in size. Baker adds that erratic winds and very rugged terrain made fighting the fire very difficult. No structures are threatened.

According to Baker, cooler temperatures and decreasing winds were aiding the fight Monday evening. Fire crews will remain on the scene overnight, and expect containment by Tuesday morning. No injuries were reported.
