Announcement from Albany County, Wyoming at 5:33 p.m. Friday, September 25:
Due to concerns from the Type 2 incident management team, as well as the forest service, Albany County Emergency Management Agency and the Albany County Sheriff’s Office have ordered a mandatory evacuation of the Foxborough area. Please evacuate the area as soon as you are physically able. The Albany County Sheriff's Office will have deputies on scene. If you need housing, please contact the Red Cross at (970)-440-7499. If you need assistance with evacuations, please contact the Albany County Emergency Management Agency.
Due to the changing winds and limited visibility, at the direction of the forest fire management team and to support the forest service closure area, Albany County Emergency Management Agency and Albany County Sheriff’s Office are requesting all individuals within the pre-evacuation zone of Fox Park, Pelton Creek Cabins, Wold Tract, Mountain Home, and Wycolo to not return home at this time, due to forest closures. If you are currently at your property, you are allowed to stay; however, once you leave, you will not be allowed to return. This is to better allow Sheriff deputies and the forest service to conduct operations to ensure all hunters are out of the area. Albany County EMA and Albany County Sheriff’s Office will try and set up a system for individuals within those areas to return to grab items and prepare their homes but a timeline for this is still unclear. If you need assistance with housing, please contact the Red Cross at (970)-440-7499.
