BRFA kept busy this week in the freezing cold

The Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority (BRFA) was kept busy this week in the frigid winter weather.

On December 15, Station 5 Bonnyville responded at 12:05 p.m. to 46 street and 51 avenue for a two-vehicle motor vehicle accident.

Dan Heney is the Regional Fire Chief of the Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority.

“Both vehicles were towed, one driver was assessed by EMS but not transported,” Regional Fire Chief Heney said.

After a quick warm-up back at the station, tones dropped again and Station 5 Bonnyville headed back out to face old man winter at 1:15 p.m. to a semi-truck on fire at Hwy 41N and Hwy 660.

“The truck was driving with a flat tire that had started to smoke but there was no fire so no intervention was needed,” Heney said.

On Thursday, December 16, Station 5 Bonnyville responded at 5:40 a.m. to the 6400 block of 54 avenue for a structure fire.

“The fire was brought under control quickly but the building suffered significant damage to its mechanical systems,” Regional Fire Chief Heney told Lakeland Connect.

The fire is still under investigation but is not being deemed suspicious.
