Wyoming Wildfires

Evacuations ordered near wildfire in northwest Wyoming


The Associated Press - September 5, 2019

CODY, Wyo. - A spreading forest fire east of Yellowstone National Park in northwest Wyoming has forced evacuations of some rural cabins and a Boy Scout camp.

The Cody Enterprise reports that Park County Homeland Security Coordinator Jack Tatum says only one person from the evacuated area had checked in Wednesday night.

Tatum says that person was from the Boy Scout summer camp and said no one was camping there.

The fire began in the Washakie Wilderness last weekend and has burned about 16 square miles (41.4 square kilometers).

More firefighters are arriving on the scene, which is west of Cody and south of U.S. 14/16/20, which connects Cody to Yellowstone National Park.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
