Cheyenne Mayor-Elect Marian Orr on Tuesday released a video thanking Cheyenne firefighters for successfully battling a fire in south Cheyenne.

Marian Orr: “Hi, this is Marian Orr. I want to thank the Cheyenne firefighters for the outstanding work last night in battling this fire in south Cheyenne. More than 30 firefighters were on the scene last night for over eight hours to put this fire out.”

Andrew Dkyshorn, Battalion Chief: “We responded about 10:30 last night. Our crews have been out here non-stop since then. It can be very difficult. The cold does present some challenges to us as far as our equipment goes, our hose lines go, lots of ice on the ground obviously, and then the cold wind and everything else. The structural stability we are always concerned about.”

Marian Orr: “The temperatures were in the single digits and the wind chill was well below zero. We should all be very thankful to our Cheyenne firefighters for the tremendous work they do. We salute you.”
