CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Firefighters took advantage of cooler weather to protect cabins and dump water on a wildfire that has grown into one of Wyoming’s biggest in recent years. The fire in Medicine Bow National Forest southwest of Laramie more than doubled to 122 square miles on Saturday but calmed down with the arrival of cold air and light snow Sunday. The arrival of cool, clear weather gives firefighters hope that water-dropping helicopters and airplanes can beat back the flames in the days ahead. The fire has burned into the cabin community of Foxborough but firefighters say officials haven't been able to get in yet to assess the damage.
