Wyoming News Briefs

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — As one major wildfire in Wyoming dies down others have ignited elsewhere in the state. Fire managers at the Russell’s Camp fire in the Medicine Bow National Forest have reassigned helicopters and crews to fires elsewhere after gaining 60 percent containment. But new grass and forest fires started in the northern part of the state and the Fontenelle Fire in the Wyoming Range has grown to nearly 19 square miles with no containment.

UNDATED (AP) — Hundreds of heat-related records recently have fallen across the United States. Piping-hot daytime temperatures this week in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana have toppled records, making things even more uncomfortable for the men and women battling wildfires raging across the West.

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead, the Petroleum Association of Wyoming and the Powder River Basin Resource Council have found common ground in the hydraulic fracturing debate. The three say the U.S. Bureau of Land Management was right to allow the public more time — until Sept. 10 — to comment on proposed new rules governing the drilling technique.

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Former Wyoming men’s basketball student-athlete Adam Waddell will play in a tournament in China, beginning this weekend. The NetScouts Basketball tournament begins tomorrow and continues through July 9.
