Video shows a house on fire in west Casper that caused enough damage to displace the occupants. Occupants were not home at the time of the fire, and pets were rescued, including a dog that was rescued by a neighbor through a window.
After a structure fire on Sunday that completely destroyed a storage shed, members of the Mike Sedar BMX Parents Association have launched a GoFundMe page to help offset the costs of damage to the structure and the loss of numerous parts of equipment, including bikes, helmets, trophies and more.
According to the release, investigators determined the fire was accidental and caused by smoking materials disposed on the back deck of the house. The release states that wind was a factor in igniting and accelerating the fire.
A release states that Casper-EMS was called to the area of the 1700 block of West First Street for a wildland fire. The statement says that crews arrived to find a fire burning in grass and light fuels on the north side of The Burlington Northern-Santa Fe rail line.
