The smoke rises above the neighborhood of Old Town on Saturday before the fire swept closer to the western neighborhoods.

Around 11 a.m. on September 5, a few Hanna residents noticed smoke on the railroad tracks not far from the Hanna Basin Museum. Probst Electric (Probst) employees saw a small fire and took their water trucks to douse the blaze. Hanna Fire Department quickly came and, a little after noon, the fire was under control

Hanna Marshal Jeff Neimark and Mayor Lois Buchanan were at the scene and were relieved the fire was not any danger to the town. They gave credit to the water trucks from Probst, a contractor working with Rocky Mountain Power, for helping make short work of the burning threat.
