CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Firefighters have made good progress on containing 6,500-acre wildfire in Converse County.

The Little Boxelder Fire about 10 miles south of Glenrock has burned grass and timber since it was first reported last Friday. It is about 80 percent contained.

State Forestry Division spokeswoman Kathy Lujan says the fire initially threatened some rural ranch homes.

But thanks to efforts by some 100 firefighters, the homes are no longer threatened.

The fire did destroy one abandoned structure.

Elsewhere, firefighters are monitoring a 218-acre wildfire in a rugged area of the Shoshone National Forest on the Wind River Indian Reservation.

There also was a lot of wildfire activity in the state over the weekend, especially in Goshen, Fremont and Albany counties. But quick responses by firefighters kept the fires in check.
