Jason Parks of Casper Fire-EMS said the northern spread is to be expected.

"It's all part of the process," he said, noting that there has not been significant movement throughout Tuesday.

4:30 p.m. Tuesday Aerial assets fighting the fire and based at the Casper/Natrona County International Airport are a DC-10, a BAe-146 four-engine jet, seven helicopters including two Wyoming National Guard UH-60 Blackhawks, four single-engine air tankers similar to crop-dusters and two twin-engine guide planes. All were active this afternoon.
