Barn, shed fire in Mission quickly quelled

24 Mission firefighters responded to Rosetta Avenue Saturday afternoon

Mission firefighters doused a barn and shed that were fully engulfed by flames Saturday afternoon.

The local department was called to Rosetta Avenue shortly after noon on April 14 for the fire.

According to Chief Ian Fitzpatrick, the house next door received some heat damage, but this was limited due to the on-shift crew’s ability to respond quickly.

An investigation pointed an electrical problem as the cause, and damage is estimated to be between $5,000 and $10,000.

It was a stubborn fire, Fitzpatrick noted, due to the number of cars, spare parts, and propane tanks located within the buildings.

In all, 24 firefighters responded, and station three members were called out to cover the downtown core.

Quad crash

A man was airlifted to hospital Sunday afternoon with undetermined injuries after crashing his quad on Burma Road in the northern part of Mission.

The man was driving down the road, which runs alongside Stave Lake, and lost control.
