A quiet morning on Main Street in Rimbey was shattered by the sound of crunching metal when a vehicle traveling east lost control and smashed into two other parked vehicles.

The vehicles, which were angle parked, were hit with such force they were spun around so they were facing the opposite direction.

Fire chief John Weisgerber was on the scene.

“For some reason, the individual lost control and hit the parked vehicles,” he said.

The accident occurred at around 3 a.m. Monday morning.

Firemen were again called out on Thursday morning to respond to a call of a house fire on 52nd Street.

The fire was called in by a worker who noticed heavy smoke coming out of the house vents.

The house was vacated at the time and the firemen had to force entry in through a locked door.

Weisgerber said he believes the fire to have been caused by faulty electrical wires.

“No one was home at the time and there was no injuries,” he said. There was major smoke damage to the house,” he added.
