A fire broke out late Sunday at the Lacombe airport.
No one was injured in the blaze, Jon Fromm, president of the Lacombe Flying Club, posted on Facebook.
“With regards to tonight’s hangar fire at the Lacombe Regional Airport, I would like to assure everyone that there were no persons inside the hangar at the time, and no injuries to anyone,” the post stated.
“Yes, three airplanes were lost, along with other objects, but nothing that can’t be replaced. Yes, the owner has insurance.”
One of the hangars on the site appeared to be the centre of the fire, which caused more than $1 million in damage.
“Unfortunately, due to the nature of the fire, there was nothing that could be done to save the hangar or it’s contents, but the successful containment of the fire prevented it from spreading to other buildings.”
Lacombe Fire Department Acting Fire Chief Eric Graham said three engines, a ladder truck, a rescue truck and three support vehicles responded to the emergency, and were able to get the fire under control after several hours.
