On the evening of Friday, September 15, 2023, the Grande Prairie Fire Department responded to an emergency call regarding a fire incident in the Lakeland neighbourhood.

In response to this situation, the fire department dispatched two fire engines, one ladder truck, and a command unit to the location. Upon their arrival, they observed smoke and flames coming from the third-floor balcony of an apartment.

The highly trained fire crews acted promptly, successfully extinguishing the fire, and preventing its spread to neighbouring suites and the rest of the apartment complex.

Thanks to the rapid intervention by our fire department, there were no reported injuries during the incident, and none of the apartment occupants were displaced.

Currently, a thorough investigation into the fire is underway. Any inquiries or requests for additional information should be directed to the Grande Prairie Fire Department's designated investigator.
