Confirmed - Wood Stove Ashes Are The Culprit In January 4th Grass Fire

 
 
FORT MacLEOD:  The investigstion into the January 4th grass fire north-east of Fort Macleod has wrapped up and RCMP confirm ashes from a wood burning fireplace were the culprit. 

The investigation was conducted by several fire departments, the M-D of Will Creek Fire Chief and the Alberta Fire Commission Fire Inspector.

It was found that a home owner took ashes (which were thought to be cold and completely dead) from a wood burning stove, and put them in a metal container in a nearby shed, early in the morning.  Later on, the wind whipped up, took the roof off the shed and spread the ashes, which ignited nearby grass. 

RCMP are not considering negligence charges and the identity of the property owner will not be released.
