Ponoka RCMP are investigating a small fire that occurred at the Ponoka Provincial Building Wednesday around lunch.
Along with police, the Ponoka County East District Fire Department were called to the scene where a blue recycle bin appears to have burst into flames.
The building’s fire sprinkler system was set off, which extinguished the fire, and also covered a portion of the main floor.
What was left of the bin was moved outside while RCMP investigated. A small amount of water was left on the floor near the sprinkler that went off.
The Ponoka News will update as more information becomes available.
