Fire Crews Make Major Progress on Delphia Fire, But Weather is Going to be a Factor! [AUDIO]
Firefighters are making good progress on the Delphia Fire near Roundup. I talked with incident commander, Pat Mckelvey this afternoon and he told me that firefighters had a good night shift and they are hoping to call the fire 60% contained this evening. Better mapping has adjusted the size of the blaze to around 35,000 acres. Tonight fire crews plan to prep for an upcoming front that going to bring soaring temperatures and wind.
