Firefighters from Coalhurst and Picture Butte were kept busy Tuesday (Dec. 26) battling a blaze on an acreage near Diamond City. Crews were called out after reports of a shop on fire. Coalhurst Fire Chief Matt Conte tells our radio station fighting fires in these extremely cold conditions presents a number of challenges including freezing hoses, slowing working equipment, and plenty of ice. There were no injuries and the cause of the fire is under investigation, however it is not considered suspicious. - Pat Siedlecki
