LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Firefighters continue to protect cabins threatened by a rapidly growing wildfire in southeast Wyoming.

The fire near Rob Roy Reservoir in Medicine Bow National Forest has more than tripled in size since Wednesday morning, reaching 1,300 acres Thursday.

Some sprinklers have been set up to protect cabins in the Keystone areas. Firefighters are also clearing brush away from structures. About 25 cabins remain evacuated.

Roads in the eastern part of Medicine Bow National Forest south of Centennial have been closed.
