An evacuee from Williams Lake has been charged with arson and mischief after a Kamloops hotel room was damaged.
She said they found that things had been thrown around inside a room in the hotel. A window was broken, a fridge overturned and some items set on fire.
“The fire suppression system of the hotel worked effectively and extinguished the flames but the water caused significant damage inside of the room and the hallway outside of the room.”
Shane Dalton Dennis was arrested and has been charged with one count of arson and two counts of mischief. Dennis, 30, was staying as an evacuee from Williams Lake in the hotel, said Shelkie..
