The Fort St. John Fire Department remains in the preliminary phase of their investigation as to what caused a fire in the gymnastics area of the North Peace Arena. The portion of the building received significant water and smoke damage, as well as fire damage in the offices and changing rooms.

Captain Dan Golob of the Fort St. John Fire Department was unable to elaborate much but did say that investigators were waiting “on a couple of variables” before being able to get back into the building. As such he stated there was no time frame as to when the cause of the blaze will be known.
