The Natrona County Fire District and other agencies were battling a fire near Power Line Road near Bar Nunn on Monday afternoon.

The fire was west of Bar Nunn, and ultimately burned several hundred acres.

The fire was nearly contained by late afternoon, but winds between 30 and 40 mph kicked up the flames again.

There were some recommended evacuations, but no homes were damaged.

The fire was eventually fully under control around 7pm.

Meanwhile, the National Weather Service has issued a red flag warning for much of Natrona, Johnson, Converse, Goshen, Niobrara, and Laramie counties. The red flag warning for Natrona and Johnson counties is in effect until 10 p.m.
