FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – There has been a well blow-out near Laprise Creek north of Fort St. John.

The B.C. Oil and Gas Commission says the incident has caused the area to be evacuated and a roadblock into the area has been put into place.  The well was operating on a lease owned by Saguaro Resources and Ensign drilling rig 444 was working in the area.  The Laprise Creek area is located east of Sikanni Chief.

At this time, there is no risk to the public, according to a tweet from the BC OGC.
