2 dead in central Wyoming fire, cause under investigation

RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP)   –   Authorities say the bodies of a man and a young female were found inside a home that was gutted in a fire in central Wyoming.

The Ranger reports firefighters battled heavy fire conditions at the home north of Riverton for hours early Thursday.

The bodies were discovered when authorities could safely enter the home eight hours after the blaze was reported.

Fremont County Sheriff Ryan Lee didn’t identify the victims and says the cause is under investigation.

Riverton Volunteer Fire Department Chief Henri DeClercq says he suspects the cause is mechanical or accidental.
