ESTEVAN - It was a busy midday for members of the Estevan Fire Rescue Service on Wednesday.

Just before 11 a.m. that morning, firefighters responded to a commercial fire alarm in the northwest side of the city. Fire Chief Rick Davies said they responded and the alarm was due to contractors working on the alarm system. There were no issues and the fire department's assistance was not required.

Just after 1 p.m. that day, the department was called to a commercial carbon monoxide alarm in west Estevan.

"We did find CO readings in the office portion of that business. Crews ventilated it and assisted the employees on site to try to figure out the cause," said Davies.

Nobody required medical assistance due to the CO.   

Firefighters were also called to a vehicle fire on the truck bypass, near the junction of Highway 39 and the Shand Access Road.

"It was a tractor-trailer unit," said Davies. "There was a fire on the trailer side of the unit. The crews extinguished it. There was minor damage to the trailer, and no injuries to report."
