ESTEVAN — Estevan firefighters were called to several alarms and what looked like a power line fire last week.

On Aug. 27, the crews were dispatched to the eastern part of Estevan for a power line that was smoking. SaskPower specialists were on scene when firefighters arrived. Estevan Deputy Fire Chief Kyle Luc said it was determined that the Estevan fire department was not required, and they returned to the station.

Earlier last week, on Aug. 22, firefighters also responded to a residential fire alarm that went off in north Estevan. An investigation determined it was cooking-related and no help from the Estevan Fire Rescue was required.

On Aug. 23, fire crews attended to a commercial fire alarm, also in north Estevan. It was quickly determined that the alarm was false and caused by a water leak, and no actions were required.
