Rosedale hills go up in smoke Wednesday afternoon


A grassfire broke out north of Rosedale on the hills behind the Suspension Bridge around 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, causing a number of area fire departments and Drumheller RCMP to respond to the blaze on all terrain vehicles.


Drumheller Fire Department Chief Bill Bachynski said the cause of the fire is still under investigation, but it is suspected to have started near the abandoned wood tipple structure atop the hill directly north of the Suspension Bridge in Rosedale.
