Shortly before 3:00 on Wednesday afternoon, Brandon Fire & Emergency Services and Brandon Police Service responded to the 2300 block of 10th St. for reports of a side-by-side on fire.

Upon arrival it was realized that much more than just a side-by-side was on fire. It appeared that a side-by-side, shed, garage, industrial-type trailer, and multiple tall trees were on fire, with flames quickly spreading towards the house on the property.

Firefighting efforts were hampered due to a downed live powerline and reports of propane/explosive material canisters in the fire area. Manitoba Hydro attended the scene to help shut down power, which allowed crews to move in and finish extinguishing the fire.

No reports of injuries, and as of 5:45pm most of the fire units had cleared the scene.
