The Huntsville Lake of Bays Fire Dept have been kept busy over the past few days.

On Monday, Station 1 was dispatched to Arrowhead Park around midnight for a rescue of 3 adults and 1 youth from the Big East River. They had been stranded for a few hours before contacting 911. Crews set up a main rescue line & assisted each person up the extreme 50 metre slope. The Fire Dept says there were no injuries.

Yesterday, firefighters responded to a remote area off Williamsport Rd. just before 10am for a brush fire. A campfire had not been fully extinguished and spread into the bush near Little Long Lake. The Fire Dept reminds residents that there is NO DAYTIME BURNING & always ensure your fire is fully extinguished.

And last night, crews were busy battling a fire in the roof of a home on Britannia Rd.  All occupants escaped safely.  There’s no word on the damage estimate or the cause.
