Idaho nears 70,000 acres, Sugarloaf approaches 1,000, northeast Wyoming Fish fire is almost 7,000 acres and Carter Canyon Nebraska is eclipsed at 15,000 acres burned encapsulating Wyoming in light smoke depending on wind direction.

Both were relatively small, expired quickly, and no storm reports verified the 60 mph winds and quarter-sized hail radar had indicated.
