A 30-acre fire in the Medicine Bow National Forest caused the evacuation of the communities of Keystone and Rambler on Monday.

Forest Service Spokesman Aaron Voos said the Keystone Fire has the potential to spread quickly in multiple directions and that people should stay away from the area of Rob Roy Reservoir and avoid using Forest Service roads 511 and 512, which are widely used to access the Pickaroon Campground and Savage Run and Platte River wilderness areas.

"We ask that people try to avoid the area and, if they know of anyone camping in that area, to passa long the message that those folks should leave," Voos said.

The Laramie Boomerang will update this story as more information becomes available.
