CHARLIE LAKE -- The Charlie Lake Fire Department put out a brush fire that spread to vehicles and a number of outbuildings.

The fire started around 11:00am Monday on 269 Road in Charlie Lake, just north of the Peace River Regional Landfill.

In order to bolster manpower and water resources, the Charlie Lake Fire Department enlisted aid support from both the Fort St. John Fire and Taylor Fire Departments.

“Most of the fire remained confined to its original location, though some grassland adjacent to the property was affected, totaling 0.52 acres,” said Tyra Henderson, the Corporate Officer with the Peace River Regional District.

The outbuildings, comprising two sheds and two barns were consumed in the fire, alongside damage and losses to four vehicles.

One of the owners of the property told CJDC TV News that fire crews had a difficult time getting to the scene because there were so many cars stopped on the road to take pictures of the fire.

All occupants and animals were safely evacuated without any reported injuries.
