Estevan Fire Rescue had only a couple of calls last week as plunging temperatures and snowfall have snuffed out some of the fire risk in the southeast.

Those fire calls were limited to December 4, with the first coming in just before 10 a.m.

EFR was dispatched to a reported two-vehicle collision on the east side of the city. After responding they determined assistance was not required. Responding crews were stood down and returned to the station.

At approximately 11 a.m., a crew was dispatched to a reported residential carbon monoxide alarm.

When crews responded and investigated it was determined that elevated levels of carbon monoxide were present in the structure.

Crews ventilated the structure to safe levels before calling SaskEnergy to the scene to further investigate and assist homeowners with possible issues.

The fire department also held their annual Stuff the Truck toy drive for the Angel Tree this past Saturday. This year, the location was switched to participate in the Miracle on 4th Street.
