Grass fire knocked down between buildings at the Lander Industrial Park

(Lander, Wyo.) – At about 3:30 p.m., Lander Rural and City Firefighters were called out to the back of the Lander Industrial Park for a grass fire that was threatening structures.

Contractor Trey Warren said a fire in a burn barrel got away from him, but he almost had the fire completely extinguished by the time firefighters arrived. While there’s some charred grass, some melted windows and a damaged fence, Warren said it could have been much worse. Firefighters are still at the scene making sure all the hot spots are cooled.

Warren’s planned contractor sale at the site is still on for Saturday morning, he said, but now he’s calling it a “Fire Sale.”
