Stettler Regional Fire Dept. responds to brush fire

Stettler Regional Fire Department responded to a baler fire north west of Stettler on Thursday, Sept. 6, 2018. Two large fire trucks as well as several volunteers and neighbours attended the scene. The reason for the combustion of the baler is unknown at this time but it did travel into nearby brush and deadfall, causing the fire to spread. Nearby cattle were moved to a different pasture for the time being. (Terri Huxley/ECA Review)
