Breaking: Historic Roberts Mission building destroyed by fire

A fire early Thursday morning has destroyed one of the historic Roberts Mission buildings this morning off Trout Creek Road. The fire call came in shortly before 5 a.m. Firefighters are just now beginning to clear the scene. The building is believed to have been vacant when the fire started but the actor ute has not been cleared for a safe search of the ruins. Lander Rural Fire Chief Nick Johnson said the more than 100 year old building was fully involved when crews arrived. They were assisted in knocking down the fire with crews from Fort Washakie, Battalion 1, Lander City and Morton/Kinnear. There were no injuries to firefighters. Cause of the fire is under investigation by the State Fire Marshal, FBI and ATF. #county10 #news
