Fire Danger Increased For Eastern Wyoming
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — High fire danger is returning to the eastern half of Wyoming.
A warm front is expected to bring warm, dry and windy weather to the region. The National Weather Service says winds will gust by as much as 35 mph through Friday evening.
No red flag warnings have been issued in western Wyoming, where crews are fighting a wildfire burning on over 21 square miles in the Teton Wilderness. Fire managers are hopeful the North Buffalo Fire will burn itself out soon as it works its way into a treeless rocky area.
Firefighters there could get some help from the weather too. Humidity has been rising and fire spokeswoman Robbie McAboy said there's also a 50 percent chance of rain there on Friday.
