Home lost to fire

County property consumed by early evening blaze this week

A family is having to deal with the sudden loss of their home to fire.

The Ponoka County East District Fire Department was called to a structure fire Monday, May 16 south of Ponoka near Morning Meadows. The call came in at approximately 8:30 p.m. When fire crews arrived, firefighters worked to quell the blaze that had fully engulfed the structure. The neighbouring property to the north had to be protected as the wind was blowing from the south.

There were no injuries in the incident and it was unknown at press time what the cause of the fire was.

While crews were able to quell the blaze, it took several hours to ensure the flames were completely out. Crews had to send tenders back to refill with water.
