Department of Environment and Natural Resources fire personnel responded to a small fire on Tin Can Hill on the outskirts of Yellowknife, Saturday afternoon.
The fire appears to have been person-caused, Wohlberg stated, however the City of Yellowknife has begun investigating.
Wohlberg stated the fire was located at a remote area of Tin Can Hill, which slopes steeply toward Yellowknife Bay. This made it difficult for city fire personnel and their vehicles to navigate the terrain.
Yellowknifer was on scene and noted that police and fire fighters were present with a fire truck and a tanker, however the fire appeared under control.
