Toni Lucas - Pincher Creek Emergency Services (PCES) responded to a brush fire near Waterton Park on Thursday, November 10 at 1:45 pm.  The fire was a prescribed burn to create fire guards to prepare for next spring’s prescribed fires within the Bison Paddock area. The fire was under the control of Parks Canada Fire crew. Due to changes in the wind conditions and direction after the burn had started,  PCES was called in to help contain the fire. The fire did not exceed the prescribed burn area. There was no damage to property, livestock, or people.
