Last Wednesday, Stettler Regional Fire Department Station 1 responded to a vehicle on fire at 10:30 a.m.

Fire crews were called to Range Road 39-0, east of Botha, for the tractor fire.

Crews blocked off the gravel road for a few hours while they doused the flames. No injuries were reported. The cause wasn’t immediately determined.

Also last Wednesday, Station 1 was called to a residential kitchen fire at 6:18 p.m. At a Spruce Drive residence, fire crews discovered a grease fire had burned out of control. Thanks to the quick thinking of the homeowners to call 911, flames were extinguished quickly and damage was limited to the kitchen.

Last Tuesday, fire crews were called to a holiday trailer fire on 51 Avenue at about 9:20 p.m. The trailer suffered major fire and smoke damage.
