Court action possible for Williams Lake Fringe Fire Protection

Residents who live in fringe areas of Williams Lake are fighting the city for fire protection (Courtesy RCMP).
The Cariboo Regional District now knows what residents around Williams Lake want to do for fire protection.

Sixty per cent of those home-owners want to keep fighting the city in court.
It's the latest in a messy battle over fire-protection.

The Regional District says the city of Williams Lake  backed out on a deal it made to provide fire-protection for outlying homes.

The District went to court and got an injunction to ensure city firefighters will respond to rural areas, but only for a couple more months.
