BRFA extinguishes fire at party held by youths

Some local youths had their party interrupted by the Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority recently.

On Saturday, April 2, Station 5 Bonnyville responded at 10:25 p.m. to a fire on Highway 660 near Range Road 471.

“Responders found a group of local youths having a party and had lit a stack of pallets on fire to keep warm,” said, Dan Heney, Regional Fire Chief of the BRFA.

The fire was extinguished and the party organizers were given information on fire permits and safe burning.

If you live or work in the Municipal District of Bonnyville and wish to conduct any burning, you must first obtain a permit from a Fire Guardian or should you live in the Alberta Forest Protection Area, from your Agriculture and Forestry Office. There is no charge for the permit.
