The Okotoks and Foothills County Fire Departments were kept busy with a van fire Monday, June 2, on Highway 2 and 338th Avenue.

Foothills Fire Chief Jim Smith says they were called out in a back-up role.

"They asked for the Foothills Fire department to help them out. We did some traffic control for them. We really appreciate all the people on Highway 2 giving us lots of room to work. No one was injured with the fire and we actually made out quite well."

Smith says cause of the fire remains under investigation.
