Due to moderating fire weather conditions, Albany County will lift the partial fire restrictions currently in effect throughout the county on September 23, 2016. The forecast precipitation and lower temperatures will reduce the potential for dangerous fires to arise from ordinarily safe practices.
While the danger of accidental wildfire is diminished, it will remain important to handle fire cautiously. The risk of a fire escaping through carelessness will remain and there will be occasional days on which this risk will be high. Please avoid unnecessary fires on hot, dry, and windy days, especially while red flag warnings are posted by the National Weather Service. As always, make sure campfires are cold before leaving them, using a shovel and water as required.
For additional information please contact the Albany County Fire Warden at 307-760-3641.

The Broadway Fire didn’t see much activity on Tuesday and the coming days’ higher humidity and rain will help to keep the fire at a moderate level. Once the drier warmer air moves in on Friday expect activity to increase. A spot fire north of Coon Creek was discovered; it is expected to get more active with the warmer and drier air moving in. Fuel mitigation and removal of fuels along the east side of Road 496 will continue. Firefighters will patrol and monitor the fire to determine the predicted spread.

On 13 September 2016, the Albany County Sheriff’s Office located the body of Jerome “Jerry” Elmore in the Snowy Range west of Laramie. A search and rescue mission had been planned to take place in the area where Elmore’s rental vehicle had been located. Before the search got underway, the Laramie Area Records and Communications received a 911 call from a hunter who reported finding a dead body in the area of the primary search area.
Deputies of the Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene and found Elmore deceased in the National Forest several hundred yards from his vehicle. The County Coroner’s Office also responded and conducted their own investigation.
In spite of requests from the media and posts on social media sites for updated information, the Sheriff’s Office was unable to provide any updated information until they were certain the next of kin had been notified.
