CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Smoke from a massive wildfire in northern Colorado is blowing into southeast Wyoming and smudging the skies above Cheyenne.

The High Park fire has burned over more than 70 square miles of the Rocky Mountain high country. The fire is burning about 50 miles southwest of Cheyenne.

Overnight winds from the southwest blew smoke into Wyoming, leaving a pungent, smoky odor in the air around Wyoming’s capital city.

The National Weather Service has issued a red flag warning for much of southern, central and eastern Wyoming on Wednesday. A red flag warning means dry air and strong winds have raised the risk of wildfires.

The forecast calls for strong winds to develop out of the west later in the day.
