Jul 6, 2017 From staff and wire reports

A wildfire continues to menace cabins and a campground in southeast Wyoming.

Medicine Bow National Forest officials expect another day of warm, dry weather to keep the fire burning Wednesday. The fire has burned about two square miles of forest since breaking out Monday.

Forest officials have evacuated people from a campground and 25 cabins in the area of Keystone about 10 miles north of the Colorado line.

The Keystone Fire, located in the Medicine Bow National Forest south of Rob Roy Reservoir, was recorded at 1,300 acres Thursday morning. It is in prominent view of travelers on Interstate 80 west of Laramie.

Gov. Matt Mead authorized two Wyoming Army National Guard UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter crews to begin aerial firefighting measures on the fire.
