Fire in Dubois, Wyoming Ravages Historic Town

Fire Leaves Wyoming Town 'Heartbroken' 1:54

A historic town in Wyoming has been ravaged by a fire that tore through a line of businesses in subzero temperatures, leaving charred buildings covered in ice. Firefighters in Dubois, a town of about 1,000, had to contend with frozen hoses and other equipment problems as they battled the blaze that raged Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, when the mercury plunged to 25 degrees below zero. "They were, as usual, heroes," Mayor Twila Blakeman told the Associated Press.

Dubois, in northwestern Wyoming, is known as a gateway to the state's scenic wildernesses, including Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks.
