The Mullen Fire has burned more than 176,000 acres in the Medicine Bow National Forest, approximately 28 miles west of Laramie, Wyoming. It is 30% contained.

Snowfall on the fire Monday reduced fire activity and slowed fire progression on the northern end. Strong winds expected after midnight could fuel the fire.
