Close call at Wyoming city facility
May 14 the shared Wyoming City Public Works and Police headquarters was the scene of a small fire. Wyoming Police Chief Paul Hoppe said there just happened to be an officer in the building on Sunday afternoon, doing reports, when there normally wouldn’t have been anybody around. He noted, “We were very fortunate the officer, (who used an extinguisher) was here.”
Chief Hoppe said Monday that he’d be bringing the council up-to-date on the incident at the regular Tuesday May 16 council session.
The city performed building assessments of the structure which began life as a township hall-- and identified needs in the heating and ventilations systems, which were addressed, and the roof has been given some attention; but issues remain affecting the functionality of the facility.
The fire was caused by failure of a water pump component, for water supply, the chief explained. It was replaced immediately and Wyoming public works and police were back in the site Monday.
