CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Cheyenne Fire Rescue responded to a small single-family home fire yesterday afternoon.
The incident occurred at 3:23 p.m. on the 200 block of West 6th Street, according to a news release by CFR.
Per the release, upon arrival fire crews discovered the structure to be well involved due to significant winds and heavy fuel load found on the property.
Units immediately began suppressing the fire from the exterior due to the high heat and the crew’s inability to access parts of the home.
At this time, the fire is still under investigation, with the cause and an estimate of damages unknown.
Citizens need to stay out of harm’s way when present at structure fires, CFR wrote in the release. Heavy smoke contains an extreme amount of dangerous carcinogens and citizens can be quickly overcome by smoke inhalation and experience acute medical conditions.
The American Medical Response, Black Hills Energy and Cheyenne Police Department also provided assistance.
