Bomb disposal unit deals with explosives left on evacuated Fraser Lake property

On Thursday Fraser Lake RCMP were advised by a home owner of explosives that were on the property. The property is within an area that is now under an evacuation order due to the current wildfire situation.

RCMP Explosive Disposal Unit (EDU) from the Lower Mainland was called to attend and neutralize the explosives.

With the extreme fire activity in the area, the BC Fire Centre, local Band Officials and local government have been advised that the explosives will be neutralized by the experts from our explosive disposal unit. Fraser Lake Volunteer Fire Department will be present to assist if needed as everyone’s safety is always the priority when dealing with situations such as this.
