BRIDGER, Mont. (AP) — An employee and a customer died in a casino fire in a small town in south-central Montana. Carbon County Sheriff Josh McQuillan says 71-year-old Marla Murray and 33-year-old John Ahles died in the fire Wednesday morning in Bridger, which is southwest of Billings. Murray was an employee at Honest Tom’s Saloon and Casino and Ahles was a customer. Both are from Bridger. The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but the sheriff says arson is not suspected. Murray and Ahles were the only two people in the casino at the time of the fire. Autopsies are planned.
