According to reports, the brigade responded quickly with a good volunteer turnout and the newly acquired Gun Lake Fire truck. The fire was attacked with water from the truck tank and several fire extinguishers. The brigade was able to successfully extinguish the fire preventing it from spreading into the forest on the side of the road. No injuries were reported, but unfortunately the truck appeared to be a total right off.
Considering the dryness of the forest this year, we were extremely lucky. See history page for more images.
Thanks also to all the generous contributors who provided the funding for fire truck, which made it possible for Gun Lake Fire to respond to this truck fire and prevent fire from spreading into the forest.

Transwest Helicopters owners Ernst and Alison Maas made the GLFPS a HUGE deal! Included in the deal are 4 base station radios, 2 Garmin 60CSx GPS, 2 spine boards, 2 basket stretchers and a level 2 first aid kit including C collars, oxygen kit and spider straps. Thanks, Transwest. It's nice to have friends in high places.
You know who you are, and we know too. Without your help, we wouldn't be where we are today. Thank you for all the hours you put in helping to build the fire building
