CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The fires that scorched about 600,000 acres across the state this year will cost Wyoming more than $40 million.
State Forester Bill Crapser said the entire firefighting cost for the unprecedented season in Wyoming is estimated at $108 million. The state and county share of that amount stands at $42.5 million. The rest is covered by the federal government.
