This year’s wildfire season was among the most destructive on record in Wyoming, with as many as 1,400 wildfires charring more than a half-million acres, state forester Bill Crapser said. Normally Wyoming will see 700 to 750 wildfires in a year, and over the last 25 years Wyoming averaged only about 75,000 acres burned a year, meaning this year was about seven times worse than normal in burned acres, Crapser said, noting final wildfire figures won’t be known until the end of the year. He estimates 1,300 to 1,400 erupted in the state this year, burning 560,000 acres and costing about $100 million to fight.
