Christnick Wildfire Contained


The Christnick wildfire north of Laramie has been fully contained as of 6 p.m. on Sept. 3. Resources are being released to other fires or home bases.

The lightning-caused wildfire burned 2,001 private, 642 federal and 66 state acres for a total of 2,709 acres.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
