A large wildfire south of Gering has destroyed three homes and damaged several others as it continues to spread through the dry vegetation in Nebraska’s Wildcat Hills. As of this afternoon, aerial surveillance showed the Carter Canyon Fire to be at 15,591 acres, an increase from 13,051 acres yesterday due to significant wind-driven runs. The fire remains at 30 percent contained, not because of lost containment line, but increases in acreage.
