On Friday August 18th, 2017 a resident in an apartment building on 2nd Ave in the city hears a noise coming from the main floor of the building. The resident went to check the area the noise came from and, once there, could smell smoke. The source of the smoke is a pile of papers that have been lit on fire.

The Williams Lake Fire Department, along with the police are called to the scene. The fire is quickly and easily extinguished with no injuries or damage reported. This could have had ended very differently.

Police are asking anyone with information on this to contact the Williams Lake RCMP at 250 392-6211 or Crime Stoppers at 1 800-222-8477
