Fires Burn On State And Private Land
Laramie, Wy – This year more wildfires in Wyoming have burned on state and private land than in the past. That has meant more work for local firefighters and higher costs for the state and counties. State Forester Bill Crapser estimates local governmental agencies have spent almost ten million dollars already this summer. And he says more fires are likely in the eastern part of Wyoming.
Crapser says local firefighters are already quite tired, but they're doing everything possible to get them some rest.
