Dry Spring Could Make for Big Summer Fires
Cheyenne, WY – Wyoming fire officials say this spring's warm, dry weather will likely mean a longer and more intense fire season. The potential for the season still hinges on rainfall amounts in April and May. But snowpacks are melting at a near-record pace and this March was one of the driest on record. State Forester Bill Crapser says the Black Hills and Medicine Bow National Forests have the greatest fire danger at this point.
