A full contingent from Prince George Fire Rescue was called out Tuesday afternoon to deal with several grass fires that broke out along the railway track adjacent to PG Pulp Mill Road.

In all, 14 firefighters from four halls, as well as two water trucks, were called out shortly after 2 p.m. They found the fires burning on both sides of the tracks for about a half-kilometre in the vicinity of the Husky Energy plant. All were extinguished in slightly more than an hour.
