CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Residents in southeast Wyoming can return to their homes and cabins as firefighters make progress on a fire burning in the Medicine Bow National Forest.

The small communities of Keystone, Rambler, Lake Creek and Moores Gulch had been forced to evacuate earlier this month because of the fire.

But firefighters have gained 75 containment on the fire, which has burned about 4 square miles (10 kilometers).

Elsewhere, firefighters have contained about two-thirds of a fire burning west of Cody in the Shoshone National Forest.
