Pilot walked away from fiery crash in Fort Nelson

The Fort Nelson Fire Department put out the blaze while the lone pilot was transported to hospital. He was released not long after, and no surrounding infrastructure sustained any damage from the fire. 

The wreckage has been removed, and the Transportation Safety Board says the initial cause of the crash was engine failure and fire. It will not be conducting a further report.
