Pine Drive house fire results in significant structural damages

JACKSON, Wyo. — Smoke seen by Pine Drive yesterday was caused by a house fire that started just before 6 p.m., said Jackson Hole Fire/EMS Fire Chief Brady Hansen.

Late yesterday afternoon, JH Fire/EMS was dispatched to a fire on Pine Drive and arrived on the scene just three minutes later. The Battalion Chief ran the incident and stayed at the fire most of the night.

“We had a very rapid response time of three minutes, but when [responders arrived] the fire was already well extended through the attic,” said Hansen.

The Jackson family was home at the time of the fire and evacuated immediately. No fatalities or injuries resulted from the fire.

According to Hansen, the fire caused significant loss to the home, with the roof of the house mostly gone. The cause of the fire is still under investigation but is not considered to be suspicious.
