This past weekend, the Stettler fire department was kept busy as Station 1 responded to a structure fire in the Village of Donalda on Friday night, Jan. 20 and one to the south of Erskine on Saturday night, Jan. 21.

“The firefighters were on scene at the earliest and were able to bring the situation under control close to midnight,” Mark Dennis, Stettler Regional Fire Chief said.

The mobile home was fully engulfed along with one vehicle which became an exposure fire, according to Dennis.

“At the time of the incident there were no occupants in the house, but we are yet to determine the cause though it is not of a suspicious nature,” Dennis added. “The fire department left the scene around 2 a.m. on Saturday morning.”

Etienne Brugman, Deputy Regional Fire Chief was out on Monday, Jan. 23 to investigate the cause of fire.

Another incident on Saturday night, Jan. 21 had the fire department headed to south of Erskine, where a shed had caught fire.

The shed was meant to keep pets warm and was being heated by a propane heater, powered by a propane tank.

“There have been no injuries reported,” Dennis said. “Our firefighters were on scene and handled the propane situation, leaving a little after 11 p.m.”
