SOUTHERN ALBERTA: New information on the damages suffered in two major grass fires in Southern Alberta Wednesday.

Cynthia Vizzutti, a spokesperson for the Municipal District of Willow Creek, has confirmed to Country 95 News that a total of four homes were lost in the fire outside Nanton.

As for property loss in the fire north of Fort Macleod - she reported no homes were lost, but up to a dozen farm buildings burned, including a dairy barn.

Officials are still trying to find out what caused the fire north of Fort Macleod, which they believe started at a rural property west of Highway 2 and north of secondary Highway 785.

RCMP have already confirmed the fire near Nanton was caused by downed power lines.

update at 12:45 p.m. Thursday: Fort Macleod fire department tells Country 95 News that the improper disposal of ashes is one of several possible causes for the fire north of the town that investigators are considering. He adds fire crews are still working to douse hot spots in the area.
