Cheyenne firefighters responded to a fire early this (Tuesday) morning in the 900 block of West 20th Street.

When firefighters arrived at 4:44 a.m. they found a large lumber and construction pile on fire which had spread to an unoccupied, single-story home.

The 15 firefighters had the fire under control in quick order. Snyder Avenue and 20th Street was closed so firefighters could easily access a water supply.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. Damage was estimated at about $50,000.


Details were not immediately available on what appeared to be a large structure fire near the intersections of 20th and Snyder Streets in Cheyenne early Tuesday.

Several Cheyenne Fire and Rescue firetrucks were on the scene around 5 a.m. Tuesday, as were several Cheyenne Police Department cars which were blocking off traffic to the intersection.

We will report further details on the blaze as soon as they become available.
