JACKSON HOLE, WYO –
UPDATE (3:30pm): Battalion Chief Matt Redwine was the incident commander on the Skyline Ranches subdivision fire this morning. Redwine said 3 engines, 1 ladder truck, 3 water tenders, and several support vehicles attended the fire, supported by a total of 28 firefighters on scene.
The first arriving engine cooled the fire through a small breech before entering. The fire was well established in the floor between levels and had also reached the cold roof. Aggressive, but safe, tactics allowed for quick suppression at 9:18 this morning.
Crews then spent up to four hours removing roof and interior wall components to access fire extension. Heavy smoke, water and fire damage did occur but a garage filled with belongings did not receive any damage.
Hap Johnson from JH Security was called upon to bring the Firefighter Rehabilitation Bus. The rolling ‘green room’ allows firefighters access to refreshments and a place to rest for 10-15 minutes in a dry, warm location.
Firefighters are battling a blaze in Skyline subdivision where a home is reportedly on fire on N. West Ridge Road.
Multiple engines have responded from Jackson and Wilson fire stations. The fire appears to be contained to a single home and firefighters are gaining the upper hand.
Neighbors say the home is a guest house to a second homeowner. No one was living there at the time but eyewitnesses say an interior decorator may have been in the house around the time the fire started.
There have been no reported injuries at this time.
