It was an “active” Monday as Casper Fire-Ems responded to several notable incidents including a person being removed from a car crash with the Jaws of Life and several cars intentionally lit on fire, officials said.
An unidentified person became trapped inside a car following a crash at the intersection of East 15th Street and Fairdale Avenue.
Firefighters immediately stabilized the vehicle, used hydraulic extrication tools to remove the door and rescued the injured person shortly before 8:30 p.m., Casper Fire-EMS said.
The person was transported to the Banner Health Wyoming Medical Center with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries.
The Casper Police Department is investigating the cause of the crash.
Casper Fire-EMS responded to a report of a vehicle fire at the Ford Wyoming Center about 45 minutes after the crash.

Natrona County investigators determined the fires were started intentionally, with road flares and signal-style distress flares either placed or fired into several front seats. There were no reported injuries.
