City of St. Albert And Mutual Aid Partners Combat Fire Update #2: May 7 At 09:00 Hours
Citadel Mews West Continuing Care Facility Fire
Further to the news release dated May 7, 2021 at 01:47 Hours, St. Albert Fire Services, in collaboration with mutual aid partner fire services from Morinville, Spruce Grove, Strathcona County and Edmonton successfully extinguished a large structure fire at Citadel Mews West Continuing Care Facility at 15 Erin Ridge Road in St. Albert. Fire crews remain on scene to douse and monitor for hot spots.
The evacuated residents were relocated to the St. Albert Inn. Most were accommodated in hotel rooms and others were placed in available beds in other long-term care facilities in the region. The City is collaborating with Alberta Health Services in this effort. AHS is leading this initiative and the City is offering support by transporting patients.
Now that there is no active fire activity, other than the occasional hot spot, the fire investigation will begin early this morning.
The City is continuing to ask concerned residents to stay away from the scene and to give first responders time and space to do their vital work. The City appreciates the courageous efforts of first responders, the generous support of residents and local businesses, and the invaluable support of our mutual aid partners. Our thoughts continue to be with the residents, staff and their families.
