Firefighters battled house fire near Rocky Mountain House for hours on Sunday

Volunteer firefighters from Clearwater Regional Fire Rescue Services and Sundre tackled blaze

Volunteer firefighters from Clearwater Regional Fire Rescue Services and Sundre spent hours bringing a house fire under control southwest of Rocky Mountain House on Sunday morning.

The call went out around 10:1o a.m. to the fire that proved challenging to put out.

“It took crews a number of hours to bring the fire under control, due to the construction of the home,” says Clearwater Regional Fire Rescue Services on its Facebook page.

“The professionalism, dedication of all the crews on scene was second to none as this fire was very difficult to gain access to,” says the report. “The fire was contained to the attic area with water damage throughout the home.”

Sundre firefighters also arrived to help and the nearby Keyera Strachan gas plant was credited for providing water to help douse the flames.

“This was an incredible display of teamwork once again highlighting the strength of our Regional Service and are partners.”
