Fire Chars Casper Home

A little after 11 this morning, fire crews were called to a structure fire on Squad Creek road. 
 

 
Upon arrival, crews discovered that more than half of the home was engulfed in flames.
 
High winds made it difficult to control and put the fire out. Fire trucks were lined up as they struggled to detain the blaze to avoid it from spreading to nearby homes. Crews were forced to shuttle water to the location, since there were no nearby hydrants.
 
Two occupants were home at the time but fortunately made it out safely and called 911. 
 
The cause of the fire is unknown. Officials are continuing the investigation.
