“There was no saving it,” Dicks said.
No one lived in the house. “They lived in the trailer behind it,” Dicks said. According to MapServer from Park County, the home on Road 4 is owned by Owen and Sally Bennet.
It was used as a hobby and pump house. It had no electricity except an extension cord powering the pump. Firefighters’ immediate concern was protecting the mobile home and garage adjacent to the house from the flames, as well as a propane tank and cottonwood trees nearby, Dicks said.
It was impossible to save the house, but they were able to save the pump, Dicks said.
