At about 10:15 this morning the Campbell County Fire Department were called to the scene of a residential structural fire on Montgomery Road by North Valley Avenue and Bruce Lane west of Gillette. Smoke is billowing from the east side of the structure and seven firefighters are actively extinguishing the fire. Powder River Energy has turned off the electricity to the structure. A bystander on scene does not know how the fire started. Emergency responders ask that people avoid the area unless travel is necessary due to limited visibility from smoke. Multiple fire trucks, EMS, and Campbell County Sheriff’s deputies are also on scene. We will provide updates as they become available.
