TVFD had two fire calls this week

(Thermopolis, Wyo.) - There were two fire calls this week. • On the 23rd at 2:59 p.m. , the TVFD responded to a truck axle on fire on Highway 120 North, milepost 139. • On the 21st at 3:30 p.m. there was a gas smell investigation at the Family Dollar store. *Reminder...* The Thermopolis Fire Department reminds Hot Springs County residents about controlled burning safety. Wind events, no matter how slight, can occur at any time and can easily cause your controlled burn to become uncontrolled. Be sure to keep a source of extinguishment near by such as a hose or shovel. Whenever possible, please put a fire break around your fire to help keep it from spreading through the grass or weeds. Please remember to call in all controlled burns to the Emergency Dispatch center at 307-864-3114 or 307-864-2622. Just because it may not be summer-like conditions doesn't mean that wild fires cannot happen. Thanks everybody for all of your help and support! #springcity #news
