"Whoop Up" fire has consumed nearly 8,000 acres.

Crews are reporting progress in their fight against a wildfire burning along the Wyoming-South Dakota border.

The "Whoop Up" fire has consumed nearly 11 square miles and at one point threatened several homes near the Wyoming town of Newcastle.

Residents evacuated Monday have now been allowed to return.

Fire officials say they've contained roughly 40 percent of the blaze.
