The fire season in Wyoming and around the Rocky Mountain West has kept firefighters active this year.

The Lava Mountain Fire near Dubois, Wyoming, is just one of many areas affected by the dry summer season. The Cliff Creek Fire near Bondurant, Wyoming has been burning since July 17th. It was caused by lightning.

It's the Whit Fire near Cody, Wyoming, that captured my attention. As you will hear the videographer explain there are 4 Chinook choppers and another plane this same size battling the wildfires.
