UPDATE: Two wildfires still burning in Campbell County

(Gillette, Wyo.) The Campbell County Fire Department is reporting that the Deer Creek Fire, south of Gillette, is still burning, but has been contained to 900 acres. Approximately 50 personnel are currently on the fire that will likely continue through early this week. The Short Creek Fire, north of Gillette, was mapped early Sunday morning and is estimated at 1,050 acres and continues to experience moderate growth. Firefighters are experiencing difficulties from high winds, lack of enough available resources, and difficulty getting resources to the fire due to its remote location. Heavy air tankers and helicopters are being used to fight the fire. Approximately 150 personnel are currently on scene and will likely remain through mid-week. CCFD is still receiving help from the U.S. Forest Service, Wyoming State Forestry, BLM, and Campbell County Road and Bridge. Ryan Lunde, a pilot at Gillette Airport, sent us this video of one of the tankers loading up before heading out Sunday night. Each tanker can carry 800 gallons of fire retardant.

CCFD says that at 1:34 a.m. Monday morning, a fire involving the cabin (which is abandoned), multiple hay bales, and the surrounding grass (less than an acre) were reported by a passer-by. The hay bales and structure were a complete loss. This was not related to other fires burning in the county and is currently under investigation. *Photo: Deer Creek Fire, h/t Tara Bennett* #county17 #news
