A fire last Thursday at Verns Self Storage in Laramie, Wyo., destroyed one building and all its contents. The other buildings were not damaged. The Laramie Fire Department is investigating the cause of the fire.
Another fire, this one at a vacant home in Indianapolis, threatened a nearby self-storage facility. Firefighters responded to the blaze around 3:30 a.m. Monday. The smoke was so heavy it set off the alarms in the building next door, alerting the fire department. Firefighters gained control of the blaze before it spread to nearby Arlington Self Storage.
Two firefighters had minor injuries and were treated at the scene. The vacant house is owned by a realtor, who was getting it ready to sell. No one was living in the home. Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the fire.
