Fire near Penrose continues to burn

The "Eightmile Fire" continues to burn near Penrose in eastern Fremont County.

According to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the fire is only about an acre in size and it is located near Phantom Canyon. The BLM says the small fire is putting out a lot of smoke because it is burning in oak and Juniper.

The fire was started by lightning on Monday.

Firefighters are working on the fire, which is in a remote area and there are no structures threatened.
