The Friday night fire we reported on earlier kept fire fighters on scene for hours and has left the house unlivable, for now.

Fire Marshal Brian Songer said the fire in the house on Stonegate Drive in Sheridan was confined to the attic and roof, but it's the smoke damage that's left the home uninhabitable. The name of the family has still not been released, but the fire marshal said they're being taken care of by family and friends until they can get back into the house.

He said the fire was put out rather quickly, but hot spots kept them around.

He said Friday's snow storm had pretty much blown over by the time the fire started, around 8:30 Friday night, leaving favorable conditions for firefighting.

About a couple dozen firefighters from both the city and county departments were there to put out the blaze. Also on scene were the Sheridan Police Department and emergency responders from the Rocky Mountain Ambulance service.
