Fire, ambulance and RCMP in Pincher Creek are on full alert at this hour after two separate blazes broke out in the community late Tuesday afternoon.

While exact details have yet to be confirmed by authorities, Shootin’ the Breeze can report that a home in the 600-block of Adelaide Street and a business at the corner of East Avenue and Kettles Street are fully ablaze and both have been completely destroyed.

For now, RCMP have closed off streets near the fires to keep the public safely away from any dangers.

This is a developing story. Please check back for updates.
