Fire Levels Gysler Furniture Buildings

gyslerfireFirefighters remained on the scene Tuesday as the ruins of what had been the two Gysler Furniture and Appliance buildings in downtown Wolf Point continued to smolder. The rapidly-moving fire on Monday, March 10, leveled both buildings.
There were no injuries reported in the adjoining Gysler’s buildings at 125 Anaconda St. The fire spread quickly and fully engulfed Gysler’s west building at the corner of Anaconda and Second Avenue South by the time the Wolf Point Volunteer Fire Department arrived minutes after an employee of nearby Bryan’s clothing store called 911 and reported the fire at about 2:30 p.m.

Gysler's Employee Saves Two From Fire

The first half of Monday might have been an ordinary work day for Cody McGill, except that he works for Gysler Furniture and Appliance.
McGill, 24, was at work in Gysler’s west building at the corner of Anaconda Street and Second Avenue South when the fire started that ultimately destroyed both of the furniture store’s adjoining buildings.
He declined to acknowledge hero status despite saving two lives, one a customer and the other a coworker, before fleeing the rapidly-spreading fire.

Wolf Point Community Down One Ambulance

The Wolf Point community is in the midst of an ambulance crisis.
In December, one of Wolf Point’s two ambulances was taken out of service due to a damaged drive shaft which caused additional problems. Repairs on the damaged ambulance were determined to be too costly.
Since then, there have been instances where the one functioning ambulance was out of town transporting a patient and local law enforcement agencies had to transport patients to Northeast Montana Health Services’ Wolf Point campus.
