Name Released From Weekend Fire Fatality

Buffalo Police Chief Jason Carder has officially released the name of the victim in the fatal house fire that occurred in Buffalo over the weekend.

Killed in the fire was John L. Knebel, 46, of Buffalo.

The fire happened at about 8 o'clock Saturday night and was investigated by the Buffalo Fire Department with the help of the Wyoming State Fire Marshal's Office.

According to Buffalo Fire Chief Gomer Gammon, the exact cause for the fire will more than likely be listed as “undetermined,” due to extensive damage in what they think is the fire's origin area, although they believe it was “probably an electrical fire.”

An obituary for Knebel was also released today by Harness Funeral Home in Buffalo.
Funeral services will be held Saturday, January 3rd at 10am from the Big Horn Baptist Church in Buffalo.
