Blair Place Fire

Flames engulf two balconies Sunday morning on the top floor of building 245 at Blair Place Apartments. Investigators are still determining the cause of the fire.

Teton County Fire Marshal Kathy Clay is asking the public for information, anything individuals might have seen or documented right before a Sunday morning fire that caused 14 apartments to be evacuated at Blair Place. 

“An investigation into the cause of a fire is similar to putting a puzzle together,” Clay said in a news release. “We are still missing a few pieces of the puzzle and hope that someone might have heard or seen something before the fire started.”

The fire started at about 10:30 a.m. Sunday. Anyone with information, photos, or videos of events that occurred in the area of Blair Place Apartments Building 245 around the start of the fire, is asked to email

All residents safely evacuated, along with several pets, although two pet birds died in the fire. Two apartments were damaged by fire while others suffered water damage. Residents were evacuated for the night as a safety precaution and to allow investigators to look for the cause of the fire.
