A fire at the Charlie Lake Meat Shop has caused extensive damage to the building.

The fire broke out at the shop at Quigley Road and the Alaska Highway around 9:10 p.m. Saturday night.

The fire was caused by a heating source for the shop’s water pump. The heating source had turned and was against the wall, says Al Pinkerton, the fire chief for the Charlie Lake Fire Department.

Five trucks were called out to the scene. Three were from Charlie Lake and two were from Fort St. John.

It took more than two hours to put out the fire.

Pinkerton says he estimates the damage caused will cost several hundreds of thousands of dollars.
