Provincial forest fire crews were called to control a fire at the Crump Forest Recreation Site Aug. 18 to 19 when a campfire got out of control.
Randal Kohlhauser, a resource compliance technologist with the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, said three or four youths were using the site when the fire grew.
“The fire did escape and it did require resources to respond to it,” he said.
Other campers in the area also helped to get the fire under control.
Kohlhauser said the youths were dropped off and picked up by a bronze Honda SUV.
The ministry would like to speak with anyone who has information about the incident.
Those who have information are asked to call the ministry at 250-558-1700 or at 250-490-2278.
