DUBOIS, Wyo. (AP) - Firefighters are battling a late season wildfires two areas of Wyoming.

One fire is located south of U.S. 287-26 in the Shoshone National Forest about 15 miles northwest of Dubois in northwest Wyoming.

The fire was first reported on Monday. It has burned about 350 acres of dense forest.

Firefighters have gained about 10 percent containment on the fire thanks to air tankers and helicopters dropping water and retardant.

The fire is not threatening any structures, but a federal team has taken over management of the fire.

A second wildfire is burning in northern Albany County. It was a prescribed fire that got out of control on Sunday.

The Bureau of Land Management says the fire is 45 percent contained.
