Fire officials at the St. Joseph station are still trying to determine whether a massive bush fire in Tarreau last night was intentional or accidental.
At about 10 p.m several officers were vigorously trying to put out the fire that left a huge section of the hillside in that community burnt down.
“We don’t know what caused the fire. We are not sure if it was intentional or accidental. We responded to the call at around 10 pm,” one fire officer explained.
The fire department is also calling on the public to be mindful when igniting bush fires.
No one was hurt in the incident and so far there are no reports of damage.
