PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. — RCMP say a man is missing after a massive blaze reduced to rubble the hangar of a small B.C. airline in Prince George.
Sgt. Jason Keays says the family of the 53-year-old local man notified police that he was unaccounted for when they were told of the fire on Saturday.
During the incident, staff scrambled to move eight parked planes, including an air ambulance, out of the way when the fire broke out.
The hangar belongs to Northern Thunderbird Air, a charter company with 70 employees and 11 aircraft.
The wood structure, which dates back to the Second World War era, was completely destroyed.
RCMP Sgt. Al Steinhauser says the fire’s cause has not yet been determined.
A Thunderbird spokesman says the man wasn’t an employee.
Officials expect flight operations to be back to normal by today.
