For the first time since the Mullen Fire started nearly a month ago, there wasn’t a measurable spread in a 24-hour period for the perimeter of the burned area.

The massive wildfire in the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest about 30 miles west-southwest of Laramie, which started Sept. 17, stayed at 176,371 total acres, with 34% containment, from 10:30 a.m. Wednesday to about the same time Thursday. The fire is expected to be fully contained on Oct. 30.
