ESTEVAN — The Estevan Fire Rescue Service members were called to an elevator entrapment on Aug. 31.

The call for service came from a building in the northwest area of the city. Several people were trapped in an elevator. Crews arrived and safely rescued everybody.

Earlier the same day, a bolt of lightning struck hay bales in a field north of Estevan. Fire crews responded and spent about two hours at the scene. Estevan Deputy Fire Chief Kyle Luc said the fire affected just a couple of bales, and no structures were damaged.

Also, on Aug. 29, firefighters were dispatched to an address in central Estevan for a smoke investigation. It was found that the occupants were having a controlled fire in their backyard and no help from the fire department was required.
