Rain, Cool Weather Helps Slow Wyo. Wildfires

INCIweb

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Rain and cooler weather has helped the fight against wildfires burning in Wyoming.

The largest of the fires is the roughly 150-square-mile Arapaho Fire burning northwest of Wheatland. Over the weekend, rain allowed firefighters there to attack parts of the fire that were previously inaccessible. It’s now 75 percent contained.

In northwestern Wyoming, authorities say cloud cover and higher humidity helped keep the 100-square-mile Fontenelle fire from growing on Sunday. It’s 62 percent contained.

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