September 22nd 2022

Members of the North Battleford Fire Department were kept busy overnight and into early Thursday morning with two separate structure fires in the City’s downtown.

The two properties, one on the 1400 block of 101st Street, and the other on the 1600 block of 102nd Street, were both uninhabited, abandoned residences.

Fire Chief Lindsay Holm said he was pleased with the response of the crews. “Our team did a great job of containing the two structure fires on a very busy night,” he commented. “Thankfully, no one was injured and the adjacent properties were not damaged due to the successful containment by our crews.”

A combination of 14 full-time and paid on-call firefighters responded to the blaze at 1452 101st Street at 9:34pm on Wednesday night. The report of the second fire at 1661 102nd Street came to dispatchers at 12:15am on Thursday morning, with 15 members of NBFD responding. The crews were back in service at 2:45am.

The two structures are scheduled for demolition today and the public is asked to exercise caution in these areas at this time.
