CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The fire danger is increasing in southern Wyoming and fire managers are asking people to use caution while recreating outdoors.

The Rawlins Interagency Dispatch area reports that the fire danger is currently moderate and is increasing with continued warm, dry weather. Fire managers track fire danger by monitoring the weather and moisture levels in vegetation.

Fire managers around Grand Teton National Park issued a similar warning earlier this week.

Officials say that fire danger indices are now trending above normal for this time of year.

As the Fourth of July holiday approaches, fire managers are warning the public that fireworks are prohibited in many areas and aren’t allowed on U.S. Bureau of Land Management lands at any time.
