Garage Fire in Casper
Shortly after 7:00 PM Wednesday, Casper Fire-EMS units were dispatched to a house located at 1455 S. Fenway for the report of a vehicle on fire inside of a garage. Fire fighters found a minivan on fire inside an attached garage of a single family home, with fire rapidly spreading through the garage.

While the fire was confined to the garage, the attached garage and its contents sustained heavy fire and smoke damage. The vehicle where the fire is currently believed to have originated in, was a total loss.
The residents had to leave the home and are receiving assistance through partnering agencies. The cause of the initial vehicle fire remains under investigation.
