A man was airlifted to hospital after an area fire.
On Sunday (Apr.1) around 1:38 p.m., emergency crews responded to a garage fire at 55104 Lamoureux Drive.
The man was taken by STARS to the U of A Hospital with serious burns to his head.
"Preliminary investigation indicates the gentleman was working on a snowmobile in the garage. Outside of that information we don't have anything else," said Sturgeon County Fire Chief Pat Mahoney.
