Wyoming Wildfire Destroys Home, Burns Other Buildings

A wildfire in eastern Wyoming burned at least one home and closed a highway.

The fire on Tuesday burned through rolling plains and trees north of Interstate 25 and south of the North Platte River near Glenrock.

The flames burned one house to the ground and other buildings were on fire, local resident Sheila Gilbert told the Casper Star-Tribune.

Witnesses saw a plane dropping fire retardant and trucks hauling water tanks.

U.S. Highway 20-26 reopened after being closed for a time.

The fire happened during strong winds and temperatures in the 90s.
