#wyostrong: Two honored for rescuing trapped resident in August 1st fire downtown Lander
Two Lander community members were recognized by the Lander Volunteer Fire Department for their actions during a disastrous fire that destroyed one of the city’s oldest structures at 201 Main Street on August 1st.
Conrad Nolde and Dave Morneau were publicly recognized for their fast action in rescuing an occupant of the second floor of the building, who was trapped by the fire and was clinging to a window sill.
The two took a ladder from a service truck before the fire trucks arrived and placed it under the window that allowed the resident to safely escape the flames without injury.
At Tuesday’s City Council meeting, the pair were honored by the fire department with certificates of appreciation for their life saving actions.
