2 Stony Plain homes damaged by fire

Two homes were extensively damaged by fire on Sunday afternoon in Stony Plain, Alta.

Just after 2:15 p.m., firefighters were called to the area of Glenforest Crescent off 57th Avenue in The Glens neighbourhood.

“Due to the size of the fire, we called upon our mutual aid partners, Spruce Grove and Parkland County to assist,” Stony Plain fire Chief Trevor Mistal said in a news release.

“A total of 33 firefighters worked together to put the fire out.”
