A brush fire has ripped through west Edmonton, damaging homes in the area. It burned homes in the Oleskiw neighborhood and this morning fire residue could still be seen in Buena Vista park.

There were no reports of injuries.

Three homes were damaged. Two suffered extensive damage. Police also evacuated residents as flames continued to spread.

Alberta currently has a province wide fire ban in place. Please be mindful and do not throw cigarette butts on the ground.
