Fire at Canyon RV Resort

Small fire contained to storage shed and immediate vicinity

Fire crews responded to a fire at The Canyon RV Resort on Sinclair Creek early this morning.

Owner Greg Deck said they noticed their storage shed on fire around 6 a.m. While they waited for emergency response, staff focused their garden hoses on the surrounding trees to stop the fire from spreading, Mr. Deck reported.

The good news is it rained hard last night,” Mr. Deck confirmed.

The fire was contained to the shed, which held lawn mowers, other equipment, and firewood, and a few surrounding trees.

Radium Hot Springs Fire Department responded, with assist from Invermere Fire Rescue. Radium Fire Chief Dave Dixon said the fire “consumed the shed.” As of 11 a.m., the crew was still doing mop-up of the fire. No reports yet on what may have caused the fire.
