At approximately 5 a.m., Dryden Fire Service responded to two emergency calls, involving motor vehicles.

The first incident reported was located west of the City of Dryden, at the crossroads of McRae Road and the Trans-Canada Highway. A commercial vehicle transporting food slid off the road due to icy conditions and was carrying three occupants. All occupants were taken to hospital for wellness checks shortly after the vehicle rescue.

During the first vehicle rescue, the Dryden Fire Service received a call from dispatch regarding another vehicle experiencing distress. A commercial vehicle slid off the road east of Dryden, at Borups Corner and the Trans-Canada Highway. Wabigoon Fire Service attended and cancelled Dryden Fire Service while en route.

“Please monitor the weather and avoid non-essential travel during poor weather conditions in the region,” said fire chief Ryan Murrell.

Just before 4 p.m. today, the OPP announced the Trans-Canada would be closed from Dryden to the Manitoba border, and Hwy. 71 would be closed from Kenora to Fort Frances.
