Prince George, B.C. – Emergency crews responded to an apartment fire in Prince George this morning.

It broke out at about 10:30 at Westridge Place at Azure Avenue and Foothills Boulevard.

“On arrival crews found smoke on the second and third floors,” says Prince George Fire Rescue Deputy Chief Cliff Warner. “It looks like there was some renovations or some type of construction going on in one of the suites that sparked a bit of a fire.”

He says the blaze forced the evacuation of roughly 30 residents though it doesn’t appear any of them were injured.

Warner says crews are still on scene “mopping up” and notes RCMP’s victim services and the City’s emergency social services were on scene to start helping those that may be affected.

No word yet on damages.



Saw the emergency crews responding didn’t know at the time to what but the amount of retardeddrivers that would not move over for the emergency vehicles was surprising and they wonder why it takes first responders longer to attend now

It’s Prince George , can’t see anything, I am on the Phone!

Every single town has issues with drivers not moving for emergency crews it’s not just the drivers who call PG home. It’s been a common problem since day 1.

I work in the BCR site and often see emergency vehicles flying past on the highway with no one pulling over, all I can think of is if it were your family in need and no one was pulling over to let crews go by safely I bet you would be upset, those few seconds it takes you to pull over out of the way can mean everything to saving someone’s life, so sad.
