Presents salvaged from Christmas Eve house fire

No injuries have been reported as a result of a fire near Teepee Creek Saturday morning. Firefighters from Teepee Creek, Bezanson, Clairmont, Sexsmith, and Wembley responded to the blaze on Township Road 740 around 11:20 a.m. on December 24th.

When they arrived, they found heavy smoke coming from a manufactured home. Crews were able to stop the fire from spreading outside of the home, but not without difficulty.

“With the temperature around minus 25, this presents extra challenges for firefighters and equipment working in these conditions,” says the County of Grande Prairie Regional Fire Service.

Firefighters were able to salvage some belongings like Christmas presents. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
