Cow Camp Fire Grows to 3,500 Acres – UPDATES

On Monday morning, the Cow Camp fire about five miles southeast of Laramie Peak was burning nearly 100 acres. Last night, the fire was up to 1,500 acres. Today, that same fire has grown to 3,500 burning acres.

The wildfire was triggered by lightning over the weekend and its exponential growth has been fueled by dry lands along with hot and windy weather conditions. As of Tuesday night, the fire was estimated to be only 30% contained. It is burning in close proximity to state lands on the Medicine Bow National Forest and private lands as well.

Miranda Lambert Admits She Carries a Weapon for Protection

Miranda Lambert is one bada– broad (we mean that lovingly) that you do not want to cross. Why? Because much like the protagonist of her smash ‘Gunpowder and Lead,’ she carries a weapon. It may not be a shotgun, as the lyrics proclaim, but make no mistake — Lambert is armed. The reason she guns up?
