Cause of Sharp Hill Fire Determined

For your information, the Airdrie Fire Department’s Fire Prevention Investigator has determined the cause of the large grass fire in Sharp Hills to be improper disposal of smoking material.

The origin of the blaze was a grassy area located near the intersection of Township Road 294 and Range Road 264 in Airdrie. The initial small fire accelerated quickly and violently due to extreme wind conditions present in the area Tuesday afternoon.

Rocky View County thanks all area residents for their assistance and co-operation during the evacuation. The County also thanks its first responders in fire and enforcement, and first responders from other municipalities who assisted through our mutual aid program.
