Not a lot of information is being released at this time, however both Albany county Sheriff’s Dispatch and officials of Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest confirm that plumes of smoke seen southwest of Laramie on Monday, are from a new wildfire.

“There is a new start down by the state line and the Boswell Creek area,” says Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest spokesperson Larry Sandoval.  ”Information is tough to come by when things are first getting started.”

We will be monitoring the situation and will bring you updates as they become available.
