Fire Marshal Kathy Clay has finished the investigation into the fire at Blair Place Apartments which occurred Sunday morning, November 14, 2021.
“This was an accidental fire,” said Clay. “The most probable cause of the fire was the LPG gas grill.”
Clay said many other factors were ruled out through the investigation process. She thanks the community for the reports and videos received after the event, which all proved helpful in the investigation. Clay also thanks Grand Teton National Park Supervisory Park Ranger Jim Warren for his assistance with the investigation.
This is the third gas grill fire in Teton County this year. Clay reminds community members to never leave a lit grill; to keep it away from combustible items, walls, and overhangs; and to completely turn off the knobs and the gas tank after every use.
