Prince George, BC -As fire rages in the Peace and in Ft. McMurray, investigators in Prince George are still trying to find out who was responsible for the Little Bob Tail Lake Fire that ripped through the area southwest of Prince George one year ago.
The wildfire originated approximately 50 kilometres southwest of Prince George and grew to more than 24000 hectares or 240 square kilometres. The fire resulted in the evacuation of residences at Norman Lake and Naltesby Lake (also known as Bobtail Lake) and took a number of weeks for firefighters to gain control and many more before it was extinguished. The resources and costs to fight this fire were extensive.
We are confident that there are persons with information about this fire that have not come forward to speak to investigators says Cpl. Craig Douglass, spokesperson for the Prince George RCMP.
Their information may be the piece of the puzzle that we need to bring the person or persons responsible to justice.
