Anticipating a return of hot, dry, windy weather by this weekend, firefighters worked Thursday to build
lines around a wildfire in the Medicine Bow National Forest in east-central Wyoming.
The Russell's Camp fire is located about 30 miles south of
Glenrock and has burned just over 4 square miles since Sunday.
Cooler temperatures and higher humidity on Wednesday lessened
fire intensity, allowing firefighters to gain 5 percent containment. But the fire was more active Thursday with warmer temperatures.
