A public information meeting was held Sunday night in Buffalo to update those interested in the situation with the Gilead Fire, burning in the Bighorn National Forest approximately 10 miles NW of Buffalo.
It's once again time to take a look at the week that was in the news with our week in review. The week began with the announcement of 21 individuals in Sheridan being arrested for methamphetamine distribution. The bust was part of a two year long investigation that resulted in three more arrests throughout the week, with more arrests possible in the future as the investigation into the meth ring is ongoing.
The Bighorn National Forest has announced that due to more accurate mapping, the Gilead Fire northwest of Buffalo is now reported to be 730 acres in size. Fire officials had estimated the size of the fire at more than 900 acres early Friday.
