Fire department called to two vehicle fires

Members of the Estevan Fire Rescue Service were called to a pair of vehicle fires on Monday morning.

The first one was reported at about 8:30 a.m. on the truck bypass east of Estevan. When firefighters arrived on scene, members of the Estevan Police Service were already present.

"It was actually a vehicle that had burned and actually self-extinguished, so there wasn't too much of an active fire scene scenario per say, however it kind of looks like there are quite a few red flags with this particular one," said Feser.

The fire chief noted the Estevan RCMP and the Estevan Police Service have been investigating the fire, and the fire department investigated a cause of origin.

While at the scene, the fire department was alerted to another vehicle fire in the east-central industrial area. The fire department found a vehicle with a fire contained to the passenger side.

There weren't any injuries reported, but the fire occurred next to a commercial property and other vehicles. None of them were damaged by the fire.

"I think a lot of that … was due to a quick call to 911 to allow us to get there in a timely manner to prevent further growth of the fire to other vehicles," he said.

Feser said there was no connection between the two vehicle fires.
