BUFFALO, Wyoming — A small, late-season wildfire is burning in the country west of Buffalo but might not last long with wintry weather expected in the days ahead.

The fire has burned at least 43 acres. Johnson County spokeswoman Marcy Schueler tells Sheridan Media (http://bit.ly/1zEITau ) the fire burned steadily from Saturday night into Sunday.

No homes or structures have burned but flames are approaching several buildings in a subdivision. A water-dropping helicopter was headed to the area from Colorado.

The northern Wyoming weather forecast calls for conditions that will help firefighters: rain changing to snow and much colder weather starting Monday.
