The Strathcona County Fire Department is saying "sayonara" to a big headache.
Fire crews were finally able to finally put out the fire that started on May 12 (northeast of Bruderheim). Crews were recently fighting minor flare-ups.
"Typically fires in that area are difficult. They smoulder, move slowly through the ground," said deputy fire chief Bob Scott with Strathcona County.
The peat in the region, combined with warm weather over the past month, were the root of the problems. Recent rain and the crews' extra effort might've saved it from turning into something bigger.
As for the cause, there still are no certainties. However crews were able to narrow it down to the origin location.
"There was human involvement somewhere along the way. There was no lightning in the area at the time or power lines that had fallen down that could've contributed to starting the fire," added Scott.
No houses or buildings were lost in the blaze. There were also no major injuries.
