Controlled explosion at quarry rattles neighbours

A controlled explosion at a quarry on Otway Road had the phone ringing off the hook at the RCMP detachment Monday.

Police started getting calls at about 8:30 p.m. about a possible explosion near the North Nechako area of Prince George.  Although many people reported hearing and even feeling an explosion, no one was able to provide a location.

Police attended the area and searched for about 90 minutes, however nothing unusual or suspicious was found. 

At approximately 10 p.m., police received and confirmed information that the explosion was a controlled quarry blast off Otway Road.
