Stettler Regional Fire and Rescue continue to investigate a Thursday, March 19 fire that reduced an old industrial building to rubble.

Two stations responded to the fire, west of Stettler, and arrived to find the building fully engulfed and beyond saving. Firefighters ensured the fire didn’t spread to adjacent buildings and ensured the fire was out in the rubble of the building.

No one was inside the building at the time of the fire, and no firefighters were injured during the call, which saw the trucks rolling home after roughly five hours on scene.

According to Deputy Chief Etienne Brugman, the building was empty and had not been occupied in some time.

Fire Chief Mark Dennis and Brugman, who are both fire investigators for the department, are investigating the fire, Brugman told the Independent. Until the investigation is complete, neither could comment on the cause of the fire and whether or not it was suspicious.
