New Year’s Eve fire at Stella Jones property

At 4 p.m. on NewYear’s Eve, Prince George Fire Rescue responded to a report of a debris/cut end pile burning at the Stella Jones property located at 7177 Pacific Street. The fire was approximately 100 feet by 50 feet in diameter with flames 40-50 feet in height and visible from many parts of the city.

Two apparatus and four firefighters were part of the initial response, and later assisted by two more apparatus and five more firefighters. Crews will work well into the night to extinguish the stubborn fire as it is still burning at this time. There is no risk of the fire spreading or risk to the public.

No firefighters or Stella-Jones staff were injured during firefighting efforts. Cause and damage estimates are yet to be determined.
