High Casper Mountain Winds Stir Up Ash, Dust

High winds stir up ash and dust near Casper Mountain on Tuesday. – Rich Denison, K2 Radio

Despite apparent smoky conditions on Tuesday, Natrona County emergency managers say there are no fires currently burning near or on Casper Mountain.

Lt. Stew Anderson, the emergency management coordinator for Natrona County, says an apparent smoke plume spotted from Casper Mountain is not actually smoke, but ash and dust kicked up by high winds.

There’s no fire,” Anderson said. “(The smoke plume) is due to the high wind picking up the black ash and dust and putting it up into the air so it looks like a big smoke cloud.”

The National Weather Service issued a high wind warning through Tuesday evening for most of central and southern Wyoming, including Natrona County, Converse County and Fremont County.
