Passerby who spotted smoke at Carstairs Golf Course averts serious damage to clubhouse

An alert passerby saved the Carstairs Community Golfcourse clubhouse from being lost to flames when they stopped to investigate the cloud of smoke billowing out over the south facing deck area on Tuesday evening October 21, 2014. They called the local volunteer fire department that was quick to respond. Crews from Carstairs and Didsbury were able to contain the fire which had damaged the exterior walls and filled the interior of the clubhouse and restaurant with smoke. Investigators are yet to determine the cause of the fire and damage is estimated to be in the tens of thousands of dollars.
