Five local firefighters and two local fire trucks were involved in the shooting of a scene for the latest season of CBC’s Heartland.

A disaster scene was shot in October by Mossleigh’s railway tracks, for the fourth episode of Heartland’s 14th season.

In the episode, called “Through the Smoke,” disaster strikes Hudson when a train derails and causes an explosion that threatens the town and the surrounding area. The episode is the fourth in Heartland’s 14th season.

The Through the Smoke episode first aired earlier this year, and the season finale of Heartland’s 14th season aired March 21.

“I was more than happy to assist the production company in making our members available, and the Heartland production crew was great to work with, letting us know what they needed to make this shoot a success,” wrote Doug Headrick, Vulcan County’s director of protective services, in an email to the Advocate. “We would be more than willing to work with them again in the future.”

Episodes of Heartland’s 14th season are currently airing on the free streaming service CBC Gem.
