Battle Against Converse County Fire Continues

D Borsum, IMET

More than 600 firefighters and several aircraft continue the fight against a wildfire south of Glenrock. The “Russells Camp” fire has now consumed nearly 5,500 acres of timber and brush in the Medicine Bow National Forest, along with state and private lands in Converse County.

The fire is now 45-percent contained, despite strong, gusting winds on Tuesday. Forest Service officials say crews on Tuesday experienced wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour, but containment lines held. Forecasts for Wednesday will continue to challenge the firefighters and pilots, as a Red Flag Warning is in place for the region. Wind gusts up to 45 miles per hour are expected.

The fire began on Sunday, June 17th. The cause remains under investigation, but fire activity has made it unsafe or impossible to complete the investigation at this time.
