Weekend fire damages Christian Food Storehouse in Riverton

    (Riverton, WY) – The Riverton Fire Department (RFD) was paged to a structure fire at the Christian Food Storehouse just after midnight on May 12.

    RFD Chief Jake Blumenshine confirmed that the fire started outside the building and spread to the inside through a window.

    As far as what started the fire, Blumenshine said that he is pretty sure someone set a pile of clothes on fire next to the building.
