The abandoned house on the Low Road where Fribjon Bjornson’s remains were found was damaged by fire recently.

The Fort St. James Volunteer Fire Department was called to the scene on Nak’azdli Reserve on Sunday, April 15 at about 12:30 p.m.. Two fire engines and 10 firefighters responded.

The structure was fully engulfed upon arrival

Grass in the yard and ditch of the neighbouring house were burnt. From the exterior, it appears more than half the abandoned house was seriously damaged.

 

The cause of the fire is still unknown at this time, and the investigation continues.
