Two mobile homes were destroyed by a fire in Sparwood on Wendesday, says Mayor David Wilks.
A travel trailer and outbuildings were also caught up in the blaze, according to the mayor.
“There are some other mobile homes with smoke damage,” said Wilks, in a Facebook post. “The fire is now under control. A big shout out to the Sparwood Fire Department for their speedy response to this incident and a big thank you to the Elkford Fire Department for coming down to Sparwood to cover our area while this incident unfolded.”
Firefighters had the fire under control by the evening, he added, and disaffected residents in the neighbourhood were able to return to their homes.
