On Aug. 24 at around 11:26 a.m., CFR was dispatched to the area of Highway 3 West to investigate a report of a wildfire. Upon investigation, firefighters determined it was dust from a forest service road.

Later that day at 10:22 p.m., firefighters assisted BCAS paramedics with patient care in the area of Pine Street and 16th Avenue North.

At 1:51 p.m. on Aug. 25, CFR said that fire departments across the Creston Valley were dispatched to the area of Northwest Boulevard and Pine Street for a structure fire.

“Firefighters arrived on scene and the contractor working on the building had extinguished a small fire in the roof,” said CFR. “We ensured the fire had not spread throughout the attic space and used ventilation fans to remove a small amount of smoke from inside.”
