By The Canadian Press on February 13, 2018.

PENHOLD, Alta. – A fire in a central Alberta trailer park has destroyed two mobile homes and left a firefighter in hospital.

The blaze in Penhold broke out around 4:00 p.m. Monday and drew members of the local volunteer fire department as well as crews from Innisfail.

There are no reports of any residents being hurt, but a firefighter had to be taken to hospital by ambulance for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

A number of surrounding homes were evacuated as a precaution before the fire was brought under control Monday evening.

Evacuees were sent to the local recreation centre to stay warm.

Power was restored to the trailer park around 9:00 p.m., and fire crews were expected to remain on scene throughout the night watching for flareups. (CTV Calgary)
