CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Firefighters hope to continue an air attack on a 1,500-acre wildfire burning in the Medicine Bow National Forest in southeast Wyoming if the weather allows.

Hot, windy conditions are expected Wednesday. The same conditions prevailed on Tuesday but helicopters and air tankers were still able to help fight the fire.

The blaze is burning about 20 miles northwest of Wheatland and about 5 miles southeast of Laramie Peak in an area mixed with ponderosa pine, brush and grass. Lightning is suspected to have started it on Sunday night and strong winds have caused it to spread rapidly.

There is a church camp and other structures in the area. An unoccupied cabin was burned on Tuesday.
