Red Flag Warning For Much Of Wyoming
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — More warm, dry, windy weather is keeping the fire danger high across much of Wyoming.
Red flag warnings were in effect through Tuesday evening. The National Weather Service said an approaching Canadian cold front would produce gusty winds from the north in south and central Wyoming.
Rain on Friday and Saturday helped slow the growth wildfires already burning in Wyoming.
Two fires are burning in the Teton Wilderness, the 13,727-acre North Buffalo Fire, which is 10 percent contained, and the 1,510-acre Butte Creek fire.
On the Wind River Indian Reservation, fire managers are monitoring the Alpine Lake Fire, which is burning on 10,545 acres in rugged terrain.
The lightning-sparked Gilead Fire southwest of Story is burning on about 1,300 acres.
