ESTEVAN — Estevan firefighters responded to a couple of incidents, as well as fire alarms and more last week.

At approximately 6:30 p.m. on May 11, crews were dispatched to a vehicle fire near Rafferty Dam. Crews located and extinguished a vehicle that was on fire. No injuries were reported from that incident, and it's currently under investigation by the RCMP, said Estevan Fire Chief Rick Davies.

Earlier the same day, firefighters were dispatched to a motor vehicle collision involving a motorcycle north of the city. Crews responded and assisted EMS and RCMP at that scene. There was one injury reported and the incident is under investigation by the RCMP.

Fire crews were requested to come and do a carbon monoxide (CO) investigation on a property in central Estevan on May 9 at about 5 p.m. Incident command responded with gas detection equipment and investigated, and it was determined that there were zero readings of CO.

Firefighters were dispatched to a commercial fire alarm in northeast Estevan on May 10 at about 6:30 a.m. Crews responded and determined that the alarm was due to cooking, so their assistance was not required.

The same day at about 11 a.m., crews were called to another commercial fire alarm in the central part of the city. While responding, they were updated that the alarm was due to work being done at the property, so crews were stood down.
