Several days after being stolen, the Kitsumkalum fire truck was found by a Terrace group.

“Thanks Brian Deacon, Dave Reinhardt, Derek Euverman and the Terrace ATV & SXS Society for finding [the] stolen Kitsumkalum Volunteer Firefighters’ Firetruck!

“We appreciate all the community support and all of those who went out of their way to look for our firetruck,” posted the Kitsumkalum band office on its Facebook page August 10.

On August 6, Terrace RCMP reported the theft, saying that their investigation showed that the thieves approached the fire truck in a pickup truck at 2:48 a.m. on Aug. 2.

And minutes later, the fire truck was seen heading north on the West Kalum Forest Service Road close to Kitsumkalum village just west of Terrace.

It was not immediately clear where the fire truck had been found: one report said near Smithers, B.C. and  another said near Terrace.
