Sheep Herder Hill Fire Update: 9.17  

The Sheep Herder Hill Fire is now 100% contained and some people are allowed on parts of Casper Mountain. 

As of 9 this morning, property owners were able to access certain areas, but must have proper I.D. and proof of ownership of their property. 

Fire authorities held another meeting this evening for community members and the main issue was what areas people could access. 

Certain routes to Muddy Mountain are open, but some areas are still closed to everyone. 

Those locations are the lower Ponderosa Park Road, Limber Pine Trail on the north, south to Hazelton Trail, Cougar Drive on the west and east to Canyon Drive. 

Emergency vehicle traffic will continue to be heavy on Casper Mountain and everyone is urged to drive slowly.
