Lacombe blaze causes $1 million in damage
An early morning blaze on Saturday at a Lacombe vehicle storage building caused about $1 million in damage.
Fire crews were called in after someone smelled smoke near the building shortly before 1:30 a.m.
Regional Fire Chief Fred Millar says the cause of the fire remains under investigation but is believed to have started in a semi truck stored in the four-bay building.
One truck was completely destroyed and two others were damaged in other bays. Two cars in a fourth bay had smoke damage.
Millar said the building was boarded up over the weekend and heated to melt the ice caused by firefighting efforts.
A fire investigation will begin today.
No one was injured in the fire, which was fought by about 18 firefighters.
