The temperatures may be plunging, but that doesn't mean fire season is over yet.

BLM crews are responding to the Big Wood Fire south of Timmerman Hill, near the Shoshone Ice Caves. The fire is burning about 20 acres but progression has slowed.

Highway 75 is closed because of the smoke and fire equipment near the roadway.

If you're traveling in the area, expect delays.
