It appears as if the cause of wildfires in the Peace region is arson.
B.C. Wildfire Service investigators and Natural Resource Officers say they found evidence pointing to at least 10 separate wildfires, in three distinct areas, that were deliberately set.
They are asking for the public’s help to solve the string of suspected wildfire arsons.
Extra conservation officers have been brought in to help with the investigation into the fires, which are believed to be connected.
Provincial fire information officer Ryan Turcot says there are still 84 wildfires burning across BC.
