Fire damages Riverton mobile home, occupants escaped unharmed

(Riverton, Wyo.) – Riverton firefighters responded to a mobile home fire at 9:36 p.m. Wednesday night in the 1300 block of South Federal Boulevard at the B&K Mobile Home Park. According to Fire Department Administrator Jeff Kehl, the fire apparently came up through the floor in the area of the water heater. He said the fire damaged a bathroom and a back bedroom, but the everyone inside the structure was able to get out. “There is nothing suspicious about this fire,” he said. “Our units got the fire out quickly and then evacuated smoke from the home. There were no injuries.”

Kehl said a fire investigator was at the scene late Thursday afternoon but a determination of the exact cause of the blaze had not yet been determined.

Twelve volunteer firefighters responded to the alarm with three pieces of apparatus. “We were at the scene just under two hours.”
