Rain, Cool Weather Helps Slow Wyo. Wildfires

INCIweb

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming’s largest wildfires remain in check after rain and cooler weather helped firefighters gain the upper hand over the weekend.

But warm, drier weather is returning, meaning conditions will soon again favor the spread of any new fires that might start.

The largest of the fires is the roughly 150-square-mile Arapaho Fire burning northwest of Wheatland. It’s now 75 percent contained.

In western Wyoming, the 100-square-mile Fontenelle fire was calm Sunday and Monday. It’s 62 percent contained, but some firefighters are starting to be released. The Bear Cub fire in the Teton Wilderness also saw minimal growth over the weekend.

Meanwhile, crews expect to fully contain the nearly 17-square-mile Squirrel Creek wildfire soon. All evacuations have been lifted near the fire burning about 30 miles west of Laramie.
