Crews get fire east of Lacombe under control

LACOMBE – Alix fire department got a large grass fire at the Golf Course under control.

Lacombe, Bashaw, Stettler and Blackfalds fire departments were called in to help April 25.

“The boys doing a great job. So are farmers in the area,” said Alix Mayor Rob Fehr late Thursday afternoon. ” It’s great to see everyone working together.”

The cause isn’t known at this time but it could be caused by passing trains.

“It’s under control but crews still on scene,” said Mayor Fehr. “It started along CN rail line I’m told.”
