Nothing could be more Canadian, eh?
That was the response on Reddit to news that the prime suspect in a small brush fire that broke out on B.C.'s Lougheed Highway Monday was a beaver.
Reddit user, r/POLITIC posted a Tweet from @ScanBC with the title, "Could there be a more Canadian headline?"
UPDATE - #MapleRidge Fire reports a Beaver is the prime suspect after it knocked over a tree on power line causing a brush fire on Lougheed— ScanBC (@ScanBC) June 10, 2013
The pesky critter had been hard at work demolishing a tree that finally fell onto power lines, causing a fire, Maple Ridge Fire Chief Peter Grootendorst told CBC.
When fire crews arrived, the only signs of the destructive rodent were its tell-tale markings on the base of the tree, Grootendorst said.
It was not the first time a busy beaver has thrown Maple Ridge traffic into chaos.
In 2005, another tree was gnawed down just a few blocks east of Monday's incident, falling directly onto a moving pickup truck, Maple Ridge News Reported.
