Law enforcement and emergency services personnel responded to several different kinds of calls Wednesday all throughout Sheridan County and beyond.

First, Wyoming Highway Patrol, Sheridan County Sheriff deputies and Sheridan Police officers picked up the chase of three Johnson County juveniles who eventually were stopped by a guardrail on the other side of the mountain They are incarcerated in Basin's jail.

Midday yesterday, emergency crews responded to a one-vehicle rollover accident on I-90 near the 5th Street exit. Three people whose identities were not released were transported to Sheridan Memorial Hospital.

County fire crews responded yesterday afternoon to two different controlled burns that got out of control -- one was south of Sheridan near Big Horn; the other was north of Sheridan on Decker Road. Burning in high winds contributed to the problem.

And the day ended with a house fire at 910 West Loucks last night at about 9:17. A bedroom in the home belonging to Bruce and Marie Browne of Sheridan was partially burning. Flames broke out a side window and the fire was moving up the side of the home when Sheridan Fire-Rescue crews arrived.

All occupants of the home, including two dogs, escaped prior to the fire department's arrival. Rocky Mountain Ambulance transported one person to Sheridan Memorial.

Fire damage to the home was contained to the bedroom and a portion of the exterior wall. The rest of the home sustained moderate to light smoke and heat damage. Specific cause of the fire is under investigation, although it is believed to be accidental.
