Posted: Updated:

Wyoming firefighters say at least 36 homes and cabins have been destroyed in a wildfire burning on Casper Mountain.

Firefighters say the Sheep Herder Hill Fire has been less active the past couple of days because of cooler, more humid weather.

The fire is 50% contained.

Fire lines are holding steady, keeping the scorched area to 25 square miles.

Firefighters are allowing some people to return home.

At least 6 people are using a temporary shelter set up by the Red Cross.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
