There were three small fires that started at about 9:30 p.m. Sunday night, just outside of Hedley.

The smallest was two kilometres west of Hedley and motorists passing by reportedly put out the fire.

A fire also broke out about one kilometre east of Hedley on the north side of the highway near the cemetery. Hedley firefighters were able to extinguish that fire.

A third fire at the same time grew to more than a hectare on the north side of the Highway, opposite the little white church.

Hedley firefighters and forestry crews worked for hours to contain that fire.
