Sunday afternoon garage fire near Huallen

At approximately 3:49 p.m. on Sunday, January 24, the County of Grande Prairie Regional Fire Service La Glace and Clairmont fire stations and the Wembley and Beaverlodge fire departments responded to a reported garage fire on Range Road 92 north of Township Road 720.

Upon arrival, crews found a fully involved single detached garage on fire, which had spread to an adjacent pick-up truck and melting the residence' siding. The Wembley Fire Department quickly knocked down the fire on arrival and prevented the fire from spreading to the home. There was radiant heat damage to the siding, but no structural damage to the residence. Due to a stock of tires in the garage, crews remained on scene for approximately two and a half hours, extinguishing hot spots.

No one was injured as a result of the fire.

The County Regional Fire Service’s Fire Marshall is currently investigating the cause of the fire.
