CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead says that the state will do what’s necessary to cover its costs of fighting wildfires around Wyoming.

Mead said Friday the state entered this fire season with about $11 million on hand.

He says the state has already spent about $6 million.

Wyoming’s late big fire season was in 2006, when the state spent about $17 million.

Firefighting on federal land, including national forests, national parks and Bureau of Land Management land is paid for with federal dollars.

Mead cautioned residents and visitors to be extremely careful with fires and adhere to fire restrictions because of the drought conditions.
