Members of the RCMP Explosive Disposal Unit, RCMP National Post Blast Team, Dawson Creek Detachment and local Search and Rescue are conducting a grid search at the site of the second explosion near a gas pipeline.

“Personnel are continuing to conduct a thorough search of the blast area and the surrounding debris field,” explains Sgt Tim Shields, RCMP Media Relations Officer. “Essentially these individuals are combing the area looking for any item that is out of place and could provide a clue to investigators. This can include anything from a footprint to a piece of the explosive that was used.”

The grid search which began yesterday is expected to continue in the area for at least the remainder of the day.
