The warm weather and heavy winds recently may have helped flame two grass fires on Saturday near Rimbey.
Members of the Ponoka County West District Fire Department were called to a relatively large grass fire east of Rimbey on Saturday afternoon.
This second fire is believed to have affected a larger area and was near Range Road 20. Firefighters were called to the field at about 2:30 p.m. and dealt with the grass fire for a few hours before they had it under control.
It is unclear what caused the fires.
As of Saturday evening, the fire ban website, www.albertafirebans.ca had only a few fire bans issued for Alberta with Parkland County and Two Hills County among them having fire bans.
