“Crews started with an offence attack but then switched to defensive,” he said. “This was a rural property with no hydrants, therefore a tanker shuttle was started.”

Steeple praised his crew who responded to the call, noting they “did a great job to knock down the fire.”

One firefighter sustained a minor injury.

The cause of the fire is not known.
