A 3rd Wildfire In Wyoming’s Medicine Bow Forest

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Medicine Bow National Forest in southeast Wyoming is seeing its third wildfire of the season.

The Arapaho Fire is the second so far in the Laramie Peak area in northern Albany County. It is believed to have been started by lightning and spread quickly Thursday.

Some local residents were evacuated.

It is only a few miles northwest of the Cow Camp fire that burned about 13 square miles earlier this month.

The Russell’s Camp fire has burned about 8 square miles of the Medicine Bow in neighboring Converse County. That fire is 80 percent contained.

In western Wyoming, the Fontenelle Fire remains out of control in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. That fire has burned about 36 square miles.

Fires also are burning in Park, Washakie, Crook and Platte counties.
