BREAKING NEWS: Large fire burning outside of Glenrock

WYO 95 out of Glenrock is closed in both directions due to a large fire between milepost 10 and milepost 15. Poor visibility is being reported, most likely to smoke. Be prepared to stop and expect delays.

According to recent eyewitness reports the back road from Top off the World to WYO 93 is also closed. The fire may possibly be attributed to lightening strikes. Aircraft are helping to fight the fire.

More information will be shared once it becomes available.
