Taylor MacIntyre


The Pouce Coupe Fire Department and the Dawson Creek Fire Department responded to a fire at the Peace River Haven Senior's Facility in Pouce Coupe late Wednesday (May 15, 2019) night.
Earlier this afternoon (Friday, May 17, 2019), the Dawson Creek RCMP issued an update on the fire.
Constable Jaime Flikweert says the fire is currently being investigated as arson.  
"We're not sure how it got started at this point, so that's what our investigation will hopefully be able to determine at least where or how the fire would have started in the first place." Constable Flikweer adds, "It just got cool enough this afternoon for us to be able to go into the building itself and poke around. So, we're still conducting our investigation at this point, but that's sort of where we're starting at."
If you have any information about this incident, contact the Dawson Creek RCMP at 250-784-3700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
