A 20 year-old Mackenzie man is accused of lighting fires near the community’s leisure centre.
RCMP say flames from one of the two fires set along the John Dahl trail reached over 30 feet before fire crews put it out.
The suspect is expected to appear in court Friday.
RCMP Corporal James Fayle says it’s troubling that the fires were set at the height of wildfire season and while a number of fires continue to blacken BC.
Fayle says RCMP are also investigating two fires that were set outside Mackenzie near Ganahatz on Tuesday.
Anyone with information about the fires should contact Mackenzie RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
