LANDER, Wyo. (AP) — Several wildfires are burning in Wyoming.

Two fires are burning in the Shoshone National Forest and another in the Medicine Bow National Forest.

A fire southwest of Lander has burned about 1,700 acres of trees, grass and sagebrush in Sinks Canyon State Park since it started Monday. Two subdivisions with about 50 residences have voluntarily evacuated and nearby campgrounds have been cleared.

More than 200 firefighters aided by air tankers are on the scene and a federal team has taken over management of the fight.

To the north, a 50-acre wildfire burning in the Washakie Wilderness is being monitored.

Another fire in the Medicine Bow National Forest has burned about 100 acres south of Wyoming Highway 70. It is burning in beetle-killed trees and firefighters have 5 percent containment.
