    Firefighters from the RM of Reynolds remain on the scene of a semi-truck fire in the westbound lanes of the Trans-Canada Highway east of the Provincial Road 308 intersection on Monday night.

  • Welcome here, winter

    Blowing snow and slippery roadways affected Steinbach drivers for the first time this season on Sunday. The drivers of two vehicles are evidence of that when they collided shortly before 3 p.m. at the intersection of Main Street and Highway 12. No need for a tow truck, though, as one individual grabbed the wrecked bumper in order to pull the Nissan car out of the intersection. Environment Canada forecasted about two to four centimetres of snow to fall today. A few flurries are expected to end tonight.
