MEDIA RELEASE

Sheridan Fire-Rescue (SFR), Sheridan Police Department (SPD), Rocky Mountain Ambulance (RMA), and Goose Valley Fire Department (GVFD) responded to 340 Wyoming Avenue at 06:53 this morning for a residential structure fire.  SFR Engine 2 (E-2) arrived on scene at 06:56 finding a 1-1/2 story wood frame home with a fire and smoke showing throughout the main floor of the home.  E-2’s crew established a water supply from a nearby hydrant and deployed a preconnected handline to begin fire attack, starting on the exterior and then transitioning inside to control the main body of fire.

SPD officers assisted the fire crew with confirming all residents were out of the home, providing traffic, and crowd control. All four occupants evacuated out the rear window of the second floor bedrooms due to the extent of the fire before emergency personnel arrived. RMA transported one occupant to Sheridan Memorial Hospital as a precautionary measure for minor smoke inhalation, while the remainder of the family were evaluated on scene. An additional RMA unit responded to the scene to provide rehabilitation and safety for emergency personnel. Goose Valley Fire Department responded and provided additional personnel and equipment to assist with fire suppression efforts.

The fire was brought under control at 07:11 and the crews transitioned to overhaul, checking for fire in the walls, ceilings, and void spaces of the home. Fire crews conducted a search of both floors to confirm there were no other occupants or pets still inside, finding no one. The building was systematically ventilated and overhauled to remove all residual smoke, heat, and the potential for rekindle.

The scene was turned over to the Wyoming State Fire Marshal’s Office Origin and Cause Investigators and is currently under investigation. 4 people and 2 cats are currently displaced due to the extent of damage to the home. No injuries to emergency personnel were reported during this fire. SFR reminds everyone that working smoke alarms save lives.

The occupants of the fire this morning are extremely fortunate, as their home did not have any smoke alarms. If you need smoke alarms in your home, please call Sheridan Fire-Rescue at 674-7244.

Structure Fire - 2857 Coffeen Avenue - March 8, 2022

Sheridan Fire-Rescue (SFR) and Sheridan Police Department (SPD) responded to 2857 Coffeen Avenue No. 1 at 22:55 Tuesday night for the report of a fire in a residential structure. SFR Engine 2 (E-2) arrived on scene at 23:03 finding a single story mobile home with a moderate amount of fire and smoke showing from the rear half of the home.

E-2’s crew deployed a preconnected handline to initiate fire attack starting on
the exterior and then transitioning inside to control the main body of fire.
SPD and Wyoming Highway Patrol officers assisted the fire crew with confirming all residents were out of the home and providing traffic control. Rocky Mountain Ambulance responded to standby for civilian and firefighter safety. Goose Valley Fire Department responded to provide additional personnel.

E-2’s crew found a majority of fire in the back bedroom with extension of heat and smoke throughout the trailer. The fire was brought under control and the crew transitioned to checking for extension of fire into adjacent areas of the building. Fire crews conducted a search of the main floor to confirm there were no other occupants or pets still inside, finding no one. The building was systematically ventilated and overhauled to remove all residual smoke, heat, and the potential for rekindle.

The scene was turned over to SFR Origin and Cause Investigators and is currently under investigation.  Six (6) people are currently displaced due to the extent of damage to the trailer.  No civilians, pets, or emergency personnel were injured during this fire.

SFR continues to stress the importance of closing doors when evacuating from a structure fire. A closed door creates a compartment and limits the fresh air that the fire needs to continue to grow. SFR personnel found both exterior doors left open, which enabled the fire to continue to grow during the fire department’s response.

Your area fire departments have been busy responding to multiple incidents in the past several days.

Loucks.  SFR’s initial arriving engine company found an approximate 10’ by 16’ outbuilding on fire.  The crew began applying water to the exterior of the building and surrounding trees and brush to limit extension to other structures followed by extinguishing the main body of fire.  Goose Valley firefighters arrived on scene and supported firefighting efforts along with providing a water supply from a water tender apparatus.  The incident was safely controlled and turned over to a State Fire Investigator.  No civilians, animals, or fire personnel were injured during this incident.

On January 13, 2022, at 09:17 SFR, Tongue River Fire District (TRFD), and Wyoming Highway Patrol responded to Mile Marker 17 Interstate 90 Westbound for a Hazardous Material incident.  SFR’s initial arriving engine company found a semi truck leaking diesel fuel from one of the saddle tanks.  The tank had been ruptured from large debris on the roadway, cousin the release of approximately 130 gallons of diesel fuel.  Both fire crews worked to contain the spilled product and then focused their efforts to stop the leak.  Once the leak was stopped initial clean up ensued.  No injuries to civilians or fire crews occurred during the incident.


At 09:23 the same day, SFR, GVFD, RMA, SCSO, TRFD, and Dayton Fire Department (DFD) responded to a structure fire at 247 Decker Rd.  The first arriving SFR unit reported an approximately 100’ by 50’ barn with smoke exiting from the eaves of the roof on all sides.  After an acceptable number of firefighters arrived on scene and a water supply was established from water tender apparatus, the fire was brought safely under control relatively quickly for the size of the building.  Positive pressure ventilation was established to remove the smoke and heat from the building.  8 goats were safely evacuated from their holding pens and moved to the exterior.  No injuries occurred to civilians or fire personnel and the scene was turned over to the State Fire Investigator.

ATTENTION PUBLIC/TRAVELERS:  TRAFFIC CONES

If you encounter orange traffic cones placed in the roadway blocking one or both lanes, please do NOT drive through or around the cones unless directed by authorized personnel! We utilize these items to create safe work zones for our crews while they are operating on or near the roadway. There were several people that disregarded these cones Friday afternoon at Broadway and East 3rd Street while Police, Fire, and EMS were working a motor vehicle accident.

TCones

Sheridan Fire-Rescue personnel assigned to A-Shift take advantage of the nice weather on July 5, 2020. The crew performed evolutions focused on delivering high volume water flow utilizing the fixed deck gun nozzle on Engine 2 and the elevated master stream on Truck 1. These devices provide personnel the ability to deliver 1,000 gallons of water per minute to aid in fire suppression efforts when confronted with large amounts of fire or the ability to apply water to protect exposures (other buildings or vehicles) from becoming involved in fire. Practicing these skills is an important safety component for the limited staffing of Sheridan Fire-Rescue, along with protecting the lives and property of the community.
