ESTEVAN - Estevan Fire Rescue Service (EFRS) members were called to a motor vehicle collision (MVC) Thursday morning.

A call for service came in at about 7:30 a.m. Two vehicles collided on Highway 47 about one kilometre north of the 361 intersection.

“Crews arrived on scene to find that an MVC with the semi-trailer and a truck had occurred where one vehicle left the road surface. Thankfully there were minor injuries. EMS arrived on the scene and packaged and transported one individual to the hospital for further assessment with minor injuries. And EFR crews provided traffic control, vehicle isolation, stabilization and turned the scene back over to Estevan RCMP to continue to investigate the cause of the collision,” said Estevan Fire Chief Dale Feser.

Earlier this week, firefighters also responded to a couple of fire alarms.

On Jan. 17 at about 5 p.m., fire crews were dispatched to the north-central area of the city, where a residential fire alarm went off. It was quickly found that it was a cooking-related issue. With not enough smoke remaining in the building, firefighters turned it back over to the homeowner and returned to the station.

The same day at about 7 p.m., a commercial fire alarm was triggered in central Estevan.

“Crews arrived at that occupancy to find that again this was a cooking-related issue that had occurred. Everything was under control and no emergency situations were happening at that time, so the scene was turned back over to management and staff and crews returned to station,” Feser said.
