Marbleton home saved from fire
Timely homeowner discovery and quick fire department response
by Sublette County Unified Fire
January 18, 2018

On January 16 at 4:01 AM, Sublette County Unified Fire Battalions were dispatched to a report of a bathroom ceiling light that was on fire. Unified firefighters quickly responded and extinguished the fire before it was able to spread into other areas of the home. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

There are two points that Sublette County Unified Fire would like to emphasize:

The smoke detectors were not reported to be working at the time of the fire. Fortunately the resident heard the noise from part of the light fixture falling from the ceiling and was able to discover the fire and evacuate in a timely fashion. It is critical that all homes have working smoke detectors installed to enhance the safety for all occupants.
The homeowner had evacuated the residence and left all the doors and windows closed helping to slow the spread of the fire. The act of closing the doors as the homeowner exited the structure helped to minimize the flow of available oxygen to the fire and gave firefighters time to extinguish the fire before it spread.

Sublette County Unified Fire wants to remind residents to periodically check their smoke/carbon monoxide detectors. If you have questions about how to properly install a carbon monoxide or smoke detector, please call Sublette County Unified Fire at 307-367-4550.
