Fire destroyed Esdilagh band office

An RCMP arson team and North District Regional General Investigation Section are investigating a suspicious fire that destroyed the Esdilagh (Alexandria) First Nation Band Office early Saturday.

Shortly after 1:30 a.m. on July 19, Quesnel RCMP received a report of a commercial alarm at the Esdilagh First Nation Band Office, the RCMP said in a press release.

"While en route to the alarm, RCMP were advised that the band office was actually on fire."

When police arrived at the West Fraser Road site they discovered community members attempting to fight the fire which had almost completely engulfed the building.

Despite these efforts, the building was completely destroyed, police said.

Anyone with any information regarding the fire is asked to call the Quesnel RCMP at 250-992-9211.

Or, if they wish to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Crimestoppers pays up to $2,000 in cash rewards for information which leads to an arrest and charge.
