JACKSON, Wyo. — Fire lines protecting the town of Jackson and the Jackson Hole Valley's main communications towers from a 2,700-acre wildfire are holding up.
Officials say the Horsethief Canyon fire burning south of the resort town didn't make any significant runs on Tuesday and was quiet overnight.
About 1,000 residents have been warned to be prepared to leave in case the fire gets too close. No evacuation orders have been issued, but fire managers are urging residents to remain on guard.
The fire, which is about 10 percent contained, is burning next to Snow King Mountain less than two miles from the town.
The fire has been ruled human-caused. Teton County issued a statement saying attorney Steve Weichman will be working with the U.S. Attorney's Office regarding potential prosecution in the case.
