U.S. Forest Service

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The largest wildfire in Wyoming this season has been declared contained.

The Arapaho Fire in the Laramie Peak area of the Medicine Bow National Forest was declared 100 percent contained on Thursday.

The fire has burned about 153 square miles since lightning started it on June 27. At its’ peak, the fire had around 1,000 firefighters assigned to it.

The U.S. Forest Service cautions that there is extensive fire damage and people should use caution within the burned area.

Hazards include changing road conditions due to rain and burned trees that are at increased risk of falling.

Although containment has been achieved, there are still smoldering areas that may not be put out until the onset of cool, wet weather this fall.
