On June 13, 2008, a forest fire broke out causing minor damage to two homes and 130 acres (53 ha) burned. The fire was believed to have been caused by a campfire. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police laid no charges, however, it was determined that remnant fallen debris of Hurricane Juan fueled the fire.
