Blood Tribe Forage plant fire deemed suspicious
STAND OFF, Alta. – A suspicious fire on the Blood Reserve over the weekend caused millions of dollars in damage and continued to burn Tuesday afternoon. Fire crews from Lethbridge, Nobleford and Fort Macleod helped the Blood Tribe Fire Department control the blaze.
“When we were called it was a very small fire. Of course, Stand Off being 20 minutes away, the fire was almost fully involved when we got here,” explained Oscar Cotton, the fire chief for the Blood Tribe Fire Department.
