CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Fire crews are fighting a new wildfire in Converse County.
The Little Boxelder Fire about 10 miles south of Glenrock has burned about 6,000 acres of grass and timber since it was first reported last Friday. It is about 20 percent contained.
State Forestry Division spokeswoman Kathy Lujan says the fire initially threatened some rural ranch homes.
But thanks to efforts by some 100 firefighters, the homes are no longer threatened.
Elsewhere, there was a lot of wildfire activity in the state over the weekend, especially in Goshen, Fremont and Albany counties.
But quick responses by firefighters kept the fires in check.
