Smoke visible from  fire on McCullagh – photos 250News

Prince George, B.C.- Prince George Fire Rescue responded to a fire on McCullagh Avenue this afternoon.

While a plume of smoke could be seen from a distance,  the fire seemed to be contained to a  boat shelter.mccullafire2

No one was home at the time of the fire.

There is no word yet on what might have sparked the canopy,  or  estimate of damage.  There are no injuries to report.


whoever is taking the photos as of late is doing an awesome job, this one and the bike one make the city look much better than when i’m actually in those locations

Another fire on McCollagh? Four major fires since 2007 (3 in 2012) a few deemed as arson. Looks like it was a nice boat, sad.

Sure hope they had some insurance on that boat–former boat owner here.

the photos you speak of are mostly or even all taken with a telephoto lens. Position the camera at the Cranbrook Hill reservoir and take a series of shots with a telephoto lens on a clear sunny day and the Rockies will look like they are as close as Tabor Mountain.

Stitch them together with a photo editing program and one gets a panorama which will make PG look like Calgary.
