Charlie Lake Fire Department Chief Allan Pinkerton says it took about two hours to get the blaze under control, and fire fighters were on the scene for about 6 hours.

At this point the cause of the fire is unknown. Pinkerton says there are reports that two motorbikes headed through the area about 20 minutes before they received a call. There is a possibility that their spark arresters started the blaze, but nothing has been confirmed.
