It appears that the fire on the back side of Casper Mountain that started late Sunday afternoon has taken a wild and scary turn and has shifted to the front of the mountain. Many structures have been lost due to this huge blaze. The fire is moving east and away from the town of Casper, but it has already burned over 5,000 acres. Approx. 400 Casper Mountain residents have been evacuated along with the surrounding areas. Casper Fire-EMS officials are asking the public to stay away from busy roadways while watching the fire. Our thoughts and prayers go out the all the evacuated people and the fire fighters who are battling the blaze.
