Cause of Cheyenne House Fire Under Investigation
Cheyenne Fire Rescue is trying to determine what sparked a Friday evening house fire in Buffalo Ridge.
Division Chief Andrew Dykshorn says firefighters were called to the scene in the 2300 block of Apache Street at 8:19 p.m. and arrived to find "heavy smoke and fire coming from a single-car garage and a vehicle parked in the driveway."
"According to the initial report, propane exploded inside the home, where some occupants were deemed either trapped or missing," Dykshorn said in a press release.
"Bearing this information in mind, fire personnel responded quickly to access the location and ensure that all seven occupants were out and accounted for," he added.
Dykshorn says after determining everyone was out, crews began using multiple hose lines to extinguish the fire from the home and vehicles.
"The fire was declared under control within 12 minutes," said Dykshorn.
"No damage was noted regarding the surrounding houses, and the cause is currently under investigation by a CFR fire investigator," he added.
Dykshorn says the American Medical Response team, Black Hills Energy, and the Cheyenne Police Department assisted at the scene.
