CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming parks department says two people have been charged with third-degree arson for starting a fire at Glendo State Park by shooting fireworks.

The fire burned 6.5 acres before it was extinguished by local firefighters.

The Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources news release didn't name the individuals.

According to state park officials, the two suspects on Wednesday shot Roman candles from a vehicle into a prairie area near the Bennett Hill campground at Glendo State Park, igniting the fire.
