MEDORA, N.D. (AP) - Two small wildfires burning in Theodore Roosevelt National Park in western North Dakota are 50 percent contained.

Both fires are in remote, rugged territory and are less than a square mile in size. The National Park Service says the Jones Creek Fire is 5 acres and the Halliday Well Fire is 11 acres.

Lightning started both fires. The area is in extreme drought this summer.

Several trails in the area have been closed.
