Prince George RCMP is investigating an arson at a logging site that damaged approximately $1 million worth of equipment. Police say when employees returned to the site Tuesday (Sept. 5) after the long weekend, they found three of their machines burned beyond repair. They had last been at the site on the Mackenzie Lookout Forest Service Road on the Friday before. Prince George RCMP Cpl.
