Drumheller Fire Department responded to a fire this afternoon around 3pm in Rosedale on Railway Avenue.

The fire department responded with pumps from Drumheller Station, Rosedale Station, and Dalum Fire Department. The fire got out of hand into the brush around the river bank.

"At this point and time we didn't need to evacuate anybody. (The fire) was more on the riverbank and the brush", stated Drumheller Fire Chief Bruce Wade.

"Even though it looks like fire is not an issue, it is still pretty dry out there and people should be really aware fire wise".

There are currently 25 firefighters on scene and the fire is under control. The Munson Fire Department has been dispatched to Drumheller to cover Drumheller as the department cleans up in Rosedale.
