JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Wildfire season is under way in Wyoming as firefighters mop up a small fire in Bridger-Teton National Forest northeast of Jackson.

The fire broke out Saturday afternoon at the base of Shadow Mountain. The fire quickly grew to nine acres but firefighters had the flames under control by Sunday.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports the area of the fire is popular for camping and recreation. Officials say they believe people caused the fire somehow.

Bridger-Teton fire prevention officer Lesley Williams-Gomez says the fire burned through dead wood and dry grass left over from last summer.
