Fire proves challenging for Prince Rupert Fire Rescue

A Sunday night fire just off of Highway 16 near Miller Bay proved to provide for a rather challenging night for crews from Prince Rupert Fire Rescue.

The fire which broke out on the site of a pair of mobile homes brought fire crews to the scene a little after 5:30 in the evening and the situation quickly became one of concern for a variety of reasons.

Besides the lack of an available water supply, resulting in the need for a fire truck shuttle system to be put into effect, the mixed nature of items found at the site kept firefighters on their toes for the bulk of the seven hours they had to dedicate to fighting the blaze.
