Crews battle blaze at ACE Radiator

Crews battle blaze at ACE Radiator

SHERIDAN — Crews from Sheridan Fire-Rescue and the Goose Valley Fire Department responded to a fire that started at ACE Radiator late Thursday afternoon.

SFR Chief Terry Lenhart said one building occupant suffered from minor smoke inhalation, but did not require medical treatment. No other injuries were reported.

Lenhart said the fire, which filled the skies over the building with thick black smoke, appeared to start in a corner of the building that had some equipment stored in it. The fire burned up from the equipment and penetrated the roof around some of the vents. Crews remained on scene for several hours to check for hot spots and to conduct the origin and cause investigation. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Lenhart said the building sustained significant damage, primarily to the west portion of the building, but will not be a complete loss.

Officials from Rocky Mountain Ambulance were also on scene and Sheridan police officers and sheriff’s deputies assisted with traffic control, closing a portion of Fifth and Custer streets adjacent to the fire while the crews worked.
