Cole Creek Fire in the Mop-Up Stage
The battle against the Cole Creek fire north of Casper, is in the mop up stage.
That according to Casper Fire spokesman Craig Kidder.
That will be painstaking work, digging into the soil and debris looking for hot spots that might re-ignite the blaze.
Of course, the evacuation order has been lifted and residents are returning to homes that may have been damaged or destroyed.
Kidder urges them to watch out for fire crews who will be there for awhile.
And he says, the investigation has begun into how this fire got started, and then so out of control so quickly.
