The Drumheller Fire Department, with support from the Munson Fire Department quickly gained control of a vegetation fire in Riverside Park late Friday afternoon, June 14. The department was called to the fire at about 4:15 p.m. in the forested area of the park between 14th street and DVSS. Currently the area is dry and covered with fluff from tree seeds that are easily ignitable. The firefighters used their bush buggy, equipment from Munson and backpack water sprayers to fight the blaze and douse hotspots after it was under control. There were no injuries.
