Firefighters respond to garage fire on West Bank

JACKSON, Wyo. — Jackson Hole Fire/EMS responded Friday night to a garage fire at 3250 W. Sundance Drive in Wilson.

After receiving the call at approximately 11:35 p.m., firefighters from Station 6 on Teton Village Road were first to respond. Once on scene, according to Battalion Chief Mike Moyer, they found a 6-bay detached garage on fire with the west end of the structure fully engulfed in flames.

Multiple Fire, EMS, and Law Enforcement units from both Jackson Hole Fire/EMS (JHFEMS) and Teton County Sheriff’s Department also responded. JHFEMS Engine 61, responding from Station 6 (Moose-Wilson Rd.), arrived at 11:44 p.m. to find a single-story structure with heavy fire coming from the western third of the structure. The Engine 61 crew quickly initiated fire suppression efforts stopping the fire’s progression.

Firefighters immediately applied water and controlled the fire until additional engines and water tenders from Wilson, Jackson, Adams Canyon, and Hoback stations arrived. The fire was contained to two bays of the garage.

Approximately 25 firefighters, 4 engines, 3 water tenders, 2 ambulances responded to the incident. No injuries were reported.

All JHFEMS firefighters were released from the scene by 3:30 a.m. Chief Brady Hansen said, “I appreciate the response and hard work of our on-duty career staff and responding volunteers who continue to step up and serve during these challenging times. Our responders are prepared to handle the current pandemic while also handling our community’s more traditional calls as well.”
