Saskatoon Fire Department responds to assist Dalmeny Fire Department with large brush fire.

At approximately 2:30 yesterday afternoon Saskatoon Fire Department received a request for Mutual aid from Dalmeny Fire Department to assist with a large brush fire that was threatening farm yards and homes 4 miles west of the city.  Two Brush Trucks, two Water Tankers, an Engine and a Battalion Chief responded to assist with the firefighting efforts. 

Saskatoon Fire crews arrived and found several large fires burning with heavy smoke limiting visibility.  The crews battled winds and terrain as they concentrated their efforts on successfully protecting 3 of the affected homes.

Saskatoon Fire Department remained on scene until 3:00 this morning extinguishing hot spots and supplying water.

The cause of this fire has not yet been determined.

The Saskatoon Fire Department would like to remind us to respect active fire bans and use caution when disposing of lit items such as cigarettes.
