Cypress County Fire Fighters were battling a grass fire yesterday (Wednesday) in the southern portion of the County.

The County says it happened in an area North of township Rd 14 and West of Highway 41, a few kilometres North of the Wild Horse Border Crossing.

The fire was reported contained just before 6:00 pm, with crews staying on scene to monitor for a few hours.

People are being cautioned that the prairies are very dry, and with current winds, it doesn’t take much for a fire to start and spread.

Anyone spotting a wildfire should immediately call 9-1-1
