Updated: Stump fire on WFN land

A stump was found with smoke billowing out of it on Westbank First Nation land Wednesday

Updated:

The cause of smoke came from a stump on fire, according to assistant fire chief Chad Gartell.

It appears suspicious as it was a rainy day, and the stump was on fire in the middle of a ravine, but no word has been given on the cause of the fire, he said.

It took fire crews time to get to the stump due to its location.
