On Monday, July 9, Stettler Regional Fire Rescue responded to a minor Hazmat call in a residence on 49 Street in Stettler.

On Monday, July 9, Stettler Regional Fire Rescue responded to a minor Hazmat call in a residence on 49 Street in Stettler.

At 8:11 a.m., fire crews were called to the house to investigate a carbon monoxide detector alarm going off.

There were no dangerous gasses found in the residence, so fire crews left the scene after  recommending to the homeowner to replace the detector, because it was three years old.

Stettler Regional Fire Department would like to remind homeowners to check their carbon monoxide and smoke detectors regularly.

On Sunday, July 8, at 5:18 a.m., Station 1 responded to a 911 call where the caller stated they heard a loud explosion along 40 Avenue, just south of the Stettler Airport.

On arrival, fire crews discovered an abandoned truck, on fire, stuck in a line of trees in a field.

No one was on the scene when crews arrived, and because it was determined the truck was purposely driven into the trees, the matter was handed over to the Stettler RCMP, and the investigation is ongoing.

On Thursday, July 5, Station 1 responded to a motorcycle-versus-vehicle collision.

At 10:25 a.m., fire crews were called to 44 Avenue in Stettler, where the incident occurred.

Two people were taken by ground ambulance to the Stettler hospital with undetermined injuries. Traffic was down to one lane for a short time while the debris and fuel were cleaned off the road. The cause has not been determined.

On Monday, July 2, Stettler Regional Fire Department Station 1 responded to a two-vehicle collision.

At 3:35 p.m., fire crews were called to the intersection of highways 11 and 21, where crews assisted Alix Fire Department with traffic control and spill control.

Both vehicles suffered major damage and were towed to Stettler. All occupants of both vehicles were treated by Stettler EMS, with only one person being transported to Stettler Hospital with undetermined injuries.

The investigation into the cause of the collision is ongoing.
