The Stettler Regional Fire Rescue, along with the RCMP and EMS, responded to a motor vehicle collision on Wednesday, Aug. 19, involving a small car and a gravel truck with pup trailer. There was significant damage to the car, which had three occupants; two of whom were children. There was one person taken to the hospital, but the condition of this patient is unknown.

Friday saw Stettler Fire Rescue responding to grass fire in the ditch, which is believed to have been deliberately set in two different locations. The fire was extinguished quickly with no property damage to report.

The following evening, Stettler Fire Rescue responded to another motor vehicle collision between a vehicle and a power pole. The cause of the collision is believed to be alcohol-related.

The Stettler Regional Fire Rescue team would like to remind motorists to slow down and use common sense when driving in these last few days of summer.
