2008 fire[edit]

On June 13, 2008, a forest fire broke out causing minor damage to two homes and 130 acres burned. The fire was believed to have been caused by a camp fire. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police laid no charges, however, it was determined that remnant fallen debris of Hurricane Juan fuelled the fire.
