RCMP were kept busy with fires in the Rutland area on Tuesday, October 23 and early morning Wednesday, October 24. At 11:15 PM a dumpster fire situated on a vacant lot on the 1400 block of Gibson Road (on McKenzie Bench) was discovered and reported. The fire was contained to the garbage within the bin. While extinguishing that fire, firefighters eyed another blaze in the distance. This was another intentionally set fire on Campion Street near Sexsmith Road. The suspects lit a large pile of reclaimed lumber stacked in a parking lot. The fire also claimed a 1968 GMC pickup, overhead power lines and caused minor damage to a nearby building.
