A residential fire in the early morning hours confirmed to be arson.
"We got the call about 4 o'clock this morning," explained Fire Cheif Bruce Wade. "We responded with a pump and about 16 fire fighters."
The fire was set to renovation materials behind the main house closer to the property's garage.
"It is an arson fire and we are investigating it more. It was deliberately set," said Wade.
The occupant of the house, which is located on 1st Street SW between 6 Ave W and 7 Ave W, was informed by a neighbor that there was a fire and proceeded to get the individual out side, safely away from the burning material, says Wade.
The arson is being investigated by the Drumheller RCMP.
"We had it extinguished and under control within an hour, I'd say," commented Wade.
Wade asks the public to contact their local RCMP if they have any information about this arson. The local Drumheller Detachment can be contacted at 1(403)-823-7590.
