ESTEVAN — The Estevan Fire Rescue Service members responded to four calls last week, including two road accidents.

On Jan. 17 at about 6:30 p.m., fire crews responded to a two-vehicle collision on the west side of the city. Firefighters were called to help with cleaning up the scene.

"We didn't respond directly to the crash, but we were called in to assist with the fluids spill. So, we went over there and cleaned that up after the fact," said Estevan Fire Chief Rick Davies.

Another vehicle got into an accident on Jan. 18 at about 6:30 p.m. Fire crews were dispatched to a single-vehicle rollover at the junction of Highways 47 and 361. Davies said there were no entrapments or injuries, so crews made sure all was well at that scene and then returned to the station.

Earlier in the week, on Jan. 16, firefighters responded to a commercial fire alarm that went off on the northwest side of Estevan. It was quickly found that the alarm was caused by some maintenance work being done at the location, and no emergency was occurring.

Another call for service came in on Jan. 21 at about 5 p.m. A fire alarm went off on the west side of the city. Crews responded and determined it was cooking-related and no emergency was occurring, so firefighters stood down and returned to the station.
