No cause found for Charlie Lake Store fire

The cause of the Charlie Lake Store Fire will remain a mystery.

Charlie Lake Fire Chief Al Pinkerton says the fire could have started due to an electrical problem, but with the extent of damage, he can’t say for sure.

The fire broke out on Tuesday morning, and Chief Pinkerton says the fire is believed to have started in the kitchen area, which is also on the ground floor.

Meanwhile, the store’s postal outlet suffered water and smoke damage in the fire, and was temporarily relocated to the Fort St. John post office at 10139 101 Avenue.

The service is available until Friday the 8th. Spokesperson for Canada Post, Theresa Williams, says she will provide an update to a more permanent location early next week.
