The Regina Fire Department is offering condolences to the family of James Hargrave.
Hargrave was a volunteer firefighter who lost his life doing his part trying to fight fires in south west Saskatchewan.
Regina Fire Chief Layne Jackson says it is a difficult thing when there is a loss in the firefighter community.
“That’s very tragic news, our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to the family and community of that firefighter,” Jackson says. “To the fire department of Cypress county firefighters, our thoughts are with you and our sympathies are with you.”
Hargrave was a rancher from the Walsh, Alberta area.
He died when his water truck rolled into a ditch just south of Burstall, Saskatchewan.
Two men from Medicine Hat have also been treated in hospital for injuries from fighting the fire.
