Gilead Fire Incident Commander Chuck Russell addresses the crowd at the public meeting in Buffalo Saturday.
The public meeting on the Gilead Fire held in Buffalo Saturday evening drew about 50 concerned citizens who wanted to be updated on the current fire situation and to ask questions of those in charge of fighting the fire.
The update from the Incident Management Team on the Gilead Fire was early Sunday morning, and as of 6am the fire is at 5,720 acres and 40% contained.
The change in acreage for the fire is again due to better mapping, according to the release.
Food insecurity is taking up more table space in Wyoming. The U-S-D-A has released new statistics on how many families have a tough time providing regular nutritious meals. Close to 13 percent of Wyomingites are in that situation, a percentage that has been creeping up since 2006.
