TEN SLEEP, Wyo. (AP) - A fire has destroyed a small Wyoming town’s fire station and five fire engines.

The fire at the Ten Sleep fire station occurred Saturday night.

No one was in the building at the time and no injuries were reported. The town of about 260 people is located in northern Wyoming.

Ten Sleep Fire Chief Norman Mullis tells the Casper Star-Tribune (https://bit.ly/1z3b7L7 ) that a frayed propane line apparently leaked and was ignited by the station’s heating system.

The firehouse exploded shortly before 7 p.m.

Firefighters from about 30 miles away in Worland had to be called to put the fire out.

Fire departments from neighboring communities have volunteered trucks and supplies until Ten Sleep can replace its station and equipment.

The total cost of the damage was not immediately known.
