CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - One individual is in critical condition and two were transported to Wyoming Medical Center after a morning house fire. Officials say they don’t know the status of the individuals right now.

Eng. Dane Andersen said the area of the 1400 block of E. Second Street to Kenwood Street will be blocked off until noon or shortly after while investigators find the cause of the fire.

Andersen smoke was found on the east side of the structure when firefighters got to the scene around 9 a.m. this morning. Lots of help was needed to put out this fire. “We had all five companies dispatched to this fire alone plus the battalion chief and on-duty inspector,” Andersen said.
