Firefighters in Kindersley continued their busy week yesterday, after a trailer inside Prairie Winds Estates caught on fire Thursday, leading to a response from the Kindersley Fire Department.

As you can see in the photo above, the mobile unit's roof caught a majority of the damage. Fire Chief Jeff Soveran confirmed that the building was a total loss inside, thanks to the resulting effects of the roof fire, mixed with smoke and water damage. Soveran also confirmed that nobody was caught inside during the response.

The fire on Thursday wasn't their only notable call during the week. Two calls to end March saw units on scene for at least a couple of hours.

Back on March 28 the fire department was dispatched to a structure fire out of town on Highway #7 east. It involved an animal pen, as upon arrival all three sides of the structure were on fire, but thankfully all the animals had been removed. Dispatched at 7:42 AM, crews had the fire under control by 7:59 AM, and the loss was stopped at 8:17 AM. All units were officially back in service by 9:48 AM.

The other call took place on March 31, as at 2:04 AM units were dispatched to a scene where two vehicles, and a structure were on fire, with the flames also threatening a second structure. By 2:43 AM crews had a vehicle and one structure under control, with a complete loss stop noted shortly after at 2:50. Staying on scene for a few hours to monitor things, all units were cleared for service by 5:03 AM.

As you can see above, the fire department has been keeping busy outside of their calls to service. More can be expected on the memo above, as the fire department is looking passenger vehicles for their training exercises. Kindersley Fire is also selling fire blankets in the community.
