Rimbey Volunteer Fire Department responded to a fire call at approximately 7 p.m. on Dec. 31 at a farm north of Rimbey on Hwy. 20 about a mile north of the Bluffton junction. The fire was extinguished by about 9:30 p.m. but the barn was partially destroyed.

Firemen had to fight the fire while sinking into huge snowdrifts caused by snow coming off the roof during the blaze.
