Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority respond to hay balefire

The Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority responded to several calls in the last 24 hours including a hay balefire.

Dan Heney is the Regional Deputy Chief for the Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority.

Yesterday, at approximately 12:55 p.m., Deputy Chief Heney says, “Station 5 Bonnyville responded to a grass fire in the 6100 block of 47 avenue. The landowner was able to extinguish the fire prior to arrival, crews ensured that the fire was completely out and soaked the surrounding area.”

No injuries or significant damage were incurred.

A few hours later at 3:45 p.m. Deputy Chief Heney told Lakeland Connect that Station 5 Bonnyville, Station 7 Fort Kent, and Station 8 Ardmore responded to a balefire in a field just North of Twp 624 and RR 450.

“Approximately 12 bales and a 24’ flat deck trailer were lost and a truck was damaged,” Deputy Chief Heney said. “But there were no injuries or significant fire spread.”

Shortly after the supper hour, Station 5 Bonnyville responded to a structure fire in the 5200 block of 53 avenue.

“A small fire was contained to the stove vent hood and a single upper cabinet in the kitchen,” Deputy Chief Heney said. “No injuries incurred, and the building was turned back to the homeowner around 7:30 p.m.”
