Fire Engulfed A Bridge In Saskatchewan And The Photos Are Incredible

No one was hurt, but the bridge was destroyed.

Posted on

Bryce Christianson was hanging out in Porcupine Plain, Saskatchewan when he saw plumes of smoke coming from nearby. "I arrived at our bridge and saw it was on fire and there wasn't anyone around except someone trying to fight the fire by themself," he said.

Christianson immediately called 911. "When I arrived there were almost no flames, just a lot of smoke," he told BuzzFeed Canada. "I thought the guy trying to fight it had it out, but in seconds flames were back and a lot more intense."

One reason the structure went up so quickly is that it's an old railway bridge, and was soaked in oil.

A statement from local RCMP said the fire started when "A local home owner had set a grass fire that had gone out of control and spread to the bridge."
