A fire Sunday afternoon gutted a Stettler residence.

At 1:30 p.m., Stettler Regional Fire Department, Stettler RCMP and Stettler EMS responded to a 911 call of a house fire in the 5200 block of 44 Avenue, near the Stettler rodeo grounds.

Fire trucks had to be recalled from the Shootout races at the Stettler airport and additional resources responded from the Stettler fire hall to combat the blaze, which initially involved the entire front of the house.

There was a lone female occupant of the residence at the time of the fire. She was able to safely evacuate herself and her dog from the home.

Emergency personnel from ATCO Power and Alta Gas were also required at the site to shut off the electricity and natural gas to the property.

Firefighters remained on the scene for about six hours before returning to the hall.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation and a value for the loss of property has yet to be determined, as of Monday afternoon.
