Nov. 18: Police and Fire Updates

Police and fire updates of the week: Remembrance day, holiday traffic enforcement, and residential wood fire.

Conducting overwatch for the protection of the Remembrance Day parade

This week, Vanderhoof’s detachment lodged 61 files and seven prisoners — numbers that had doubled at times in the past, the RCMP said.

Remembrance Day

Conducting overwatch for the protection of the Remembrance Day parade, Cpl. Wade Harvey said the role had started last year, though it was more overt this year.

All members of the Vanderhoof RCMP detachment, except for one who was on sick leave, were involved in this year’s Remembrance Day service.

Traffic: holiday and winter

As the holiday season sets in, RCMP enforcement on traffic will continue and become more visible.

In light of multiple traffic accidents due to recent weather in Prince George, the RCMP also advises drivers to prepare mentally and equipment-wise for the incoming snow.

Suspected residential wood fire

On Nov. 5th, an interior fire within the residence on 360 Fourth Avenue was reported at about 4:20 p.m.

Causing $80,000 damage, no one was home at the event.

The fire was contained to the inside of the building by 18 members and three apparatuses of the Vanderhoof Fire Rescue.

Though wood burning appliances are suspected, the cause of the fire is under investigation.
