Halloween 2013 comparably calm in Castlegar

Little to deal with for fire department on Halloween night

  • Nov. 1, 2013 8:00 p.m.

With many super-busy Halloweens clear in his memory, it was a relieved Castlegar Fire Chief Gerry Rempel who provided a brief report on the morning of November 1 in downtown Castlegar.

“Halloween this year was pretty un-eventful for the fire department,” Rempel related. “We had one call last night after 11 o’clock. We got called to a tree on fire. It looked as though some fireworks were used in connection with it. Other than that it was very quiet. I’d like to thank everybody for keeping it quiet for us.”

A report from Castlegar RCMP regarding the volume of  Halloween activity had been solicited, but the Castlegar News was told such a report was not likely to be forthcoming until late afternoon or early evening on Nov. 1.
