GLENROCK, Wyo. (AP) — A wildfire in eastern Wyoming burned at least one home and closed a highway. The fire Tuesday burned through rolling plains and trees north of Interstate 25 and south of the North Platte River near Glenrock.

Local resident Sheila Gilbert tells the Casper Star-Tribune the flames burned one house to the ground and other buildings were on fire. U.S. Highway 20-26 reopened after being closed for a time. The fire happened during strong winds and temperatures in the 90s. Warm, dry weather prompted the National Weather Service to continue a warning for high fire danger for central and eastern Wyoming on Wednesday.
