Williams Lake, B.C. –  Another case of arson  in Williams Lake,  the  city that is trying to recover from the threat  of wildfires in  the Cariboo.

This morning,  a resident  of  an apartment building on  2nd Ave in Williams Lake,  heard a noise coming from the main floor of the building.

The resident went to check the area   and  could smell smoke.

The smoke  was from a pile of papers that had been set on fire.

The Williams Lake Fire Department, along with the police were called to the scene.  The flames  were  extinguished  quickly  before  they could cause any damage or injuries to  residents of the building.

This is the second case  of arson in Williams Lake in a week.    On Tuesday  the 15th,  5 males were arrested  in connection with  an  investigation that involved   fires being set  ( see previous story)

Around 5:41 this morning, Williams Lake RCMP were dispatched to a report of a fire in the Lexington Road Subdivision.

Get the Rope

What is going on in Williams Lake? There is nothing but a string of bad news and crime about that town.

I wouldn’t be surprised if all the events ( bodies found, this arson, and the drug bust) were not interrelated in some way. That town is full of s**t rats. They had the highest per percentage of auto thefts in Canada there at one point.

Time to make it a capital offence and take a huge bite out of this fecal materials of society! What happened to the ‘get tough on crime’ program awhile back? Throw these dirtbags into the fires, they are of no use to W.L. anyways! Vigilantism is my wish now, wish the people would get on with it, as the system isnt worth the politicians that are running it! :)

I guess those twerps never got enough of the real thing. Put em out on the end of a shovel right up at the front lines.

Help me out here as I really don’t know the whole story but as I see it if you are on welfare and are evacuated do you get 600 every 2 weeks and you are fed 3 meals a day and free lodging why would you be in any hurry to go back to nothing…just curious help me out understanding this
