CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Progress continues to be made on fighting wildfires in western Wyoming, and most evacuation orders are being lifted.

The only area still under evacuation Wednesday was the Granite Creek area in Teton County, which has been evacuated because of a wildfire burning in the Bridger-Teton National Forest.

The fire has burned 46 square miles but is 84 percent contained.

Near the Utah border, a wildfire that has burned 2 square miles on private land is now 58 percent contained and all evacuated homeowners were being allowed to return home Wednesday.

And firefighters have gained 60 percent containment on a fire that has burned about 22 square miles of private and Shoshone National Forest land northwest of Dubois.

A new small fire is burning south of Douglas in central Wyoming.
