Blair says investigation into Lytton fire cause underway

Public Safety Minister Bill Blair said Friday an investigation into the cause of the Lytton fire that destroyed the town was “very actively” underway and more information would come from RCMP once it can be made available. Amid suggestions the Lytton fire may have been due to a spark from a train moving through the area, Blair said he had spoken with Transportation Minister Omar Alghabra about the potential concerns of trains moving through areas of B.C. impacted by wildfires, but could not say if any restrictions would take place.
