Wyoming wildfire slows but windy forecast cause for concern
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (PRESS RELEASE) — A wildfire that roared across a Wyoming wilderness area toward cabins and a water supply reservoir for Cheyenne has since calmed but predictions for windier weather are cause for concern.
The fire grew little Monday and Tuesday after burning over 21 square miles of Medicine Bow National Forest in southeastern Wyoming last weekend. Flames are within a few miles of Rob Roy Reservoir and Keystone, an enclave of summer cabins.
The National Weather Service says more windy weather is in store Wednesday through the weekend. The fire began Thursday in the Savage Run Wilderness and officials are investigating signs that it was caused by humans.
