Fire destroys Lander home; Authorities have yet to release details

(Lander, Wyo.) – A fire that destroyed a Lander family’s home is still under investigation, and authorities have released no details about the incident to County10. Despite multiple phone calls, all either did not return messages right away or declined to comment at this time.

The apparently fast-moving blaze has leveled the home that stood on the corner of Highway 287 and Lyons Valley Road. Winds during the fire swept smoke across the highway and onlookers stopped in a nearby turn-off to watch the fire.

A Fremont County Coroner’s vehicle was reportedly seen at the scene, but authorities have not confirmed fatalities. There are a number of rumors and speculation on social media, but nothing has been confirmed. More information will be reported as it comes available.
