(CBS4) – The Mullen Fire burning on the Colorado-Wyoming state line has claimed more than 60 buildings. More than 1,400 people remain evacuated from the growing wildfire.
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.
