The O’Leary Fire De­part­ment and West Prince RCMP re­sponded to a brush fire in Alaska, P.E.I., just be­fore 5 p.m. on July 11. The brush fire turned out to be small and the fire de­part­ment was able to ex­tin­guish it with min­i­mal dam­age caused. Po­lice in­ves­ti­gated and a male was ar­rested for ar­son and ut­ter­ing threats to dam­age prop­erty. He is sched­uled to at­tend court in Au­gust. The RCMP are re­mind­ing the public the weather has been dry and brush fires could po­ten­tially get out of hand. The prov­ince has a fire weather in­dex and the public should check it to see if bans are in place.
