North Casper Fire Nearly Extinguished

Drew Douglas reports,

The large fire in North Casper that started last week and spread to another unoccupied house is nearly extinguished.

Casper Fire Department Prevention Officer Justin Smith says there continues to be hot spots, but most of the smoldering fire is out.

Smith says fire crew are going by and checking the area every couple of hours.

He expects the controlled burn  to die off in the next few days, but Monday's rain may speed up the process.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
