CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities have lifted a mandatory evacuation of the Miracle Mile campground along the North Platte River because of a wildfire burning north of Seminoe Reservoir in south-central Wyoming.

However, the popular fishing spot remains under voluntary evacuation status.

The Seminoe Fire has burned about 5 square miles of pine, sagebrush and grass in Carbon County since it was started by lightning last weekend. It is burning in rough terrain about a mile north of the Seminoe Dam.

No structures have burned, but there are a couple of dozen homes, cabins and a Bureau of Reclamation housing area threatened.

There are about 175 firefighters, aided by helicopters and air tankers, fighting the fire and more experienced crews are being sent in. The fire is 22 percent contained.
