BNSF trains continue to operate through Evansville and Casper despite the wildland fire Sunday and today, a company spokesman said.

"At this time the fire has approached our right of way, but it has not impacted traffic through the area," Matt Jones said.

"We do have maintenance crews on site monitoring the site along the railroad," Jones said.

The fire has affected an area nearly 11 square miles from north of Casper and Evansville east to Meadow Acres.
