At about 10 p.m. Friday, two firefighters responded to a report of a Molotov cocktail on a lawn at 1281 - 106th St. The fire was out by the time crews arrived.
Four vehicles were involved in a smash up on the southbound North Saskatchewan River bridge at about 5:45 p.m. Wednesday. No injuries were reported.

A two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Territorial Drive and 100th Street just before 7 p.m. Thursday sent two people to hospital with undetermined injuries.
Thursday morning, firefighters responded to a report of smoke at 1846 - 92nd St. The house sustained smoke and fire damage from a cooking fire, which had been extinguished before fire crews arrived. Firefighters assisted with smoke removal and determined unattended cooking oil was the cause.
