The Cow Camp fire is now at 6,487 acres and containment is  at 15-percent. The f ire has burned National Forest, State of Wyoming and private lands.

The number of people battling the blaze is now at 333. Resources include nine hand crews, 20 engines, one Type I helicopter, two Type III helicopters. Four single-engine airtankers worked the fire today (Friday). Officials say smoke from the fire remains very visible, especially from I-25 and in Wheatland, WY.

The North and Northeast portions of the fire are most active and as of Friday afternoon was  within one and a half miles from Camp Grace with structure protection in place. The weather forecast in North Albany County calls for increasing winds from the southwest throughout today (Friday) and continuing into Saturday.  Crews will be strengthening fire lines in anticipation.

Recreationists in the Laramie Range are reminded to respect road closures and to observe the fire from a safe distance behind the barriers.  This includes traffic coming south from both the popular Esterbrook and Harris Park areas.  Albany County Sheriffs Deputies are actively patrolling the entire area and according to Deputy Clyde Harris,  will be enforcing the area closure and will issue fines if necessary.
