We're hearing multiple reports that there is a large amount of smoke in Riverton this evening. We've reached out to the Shoshone National Forest and Public Information Officer Kristi Salzmann tells County 10 that it is highly likely that the smoke we're experiencing is from the Whit Creek fire in Cody which was reported yesterday afternoon and has now burned approximately 3,000 acres. We have reached out to the Riverton Fire Department for confirmation but haven't been able to reach them. Click here to learn more about the Whit Creek Fire on Basin Reboot.
We will update this post as soon as more information becomes available.
