No reports of property crime in Fort Chipewyan evacuation zone, RCMP say

The chief of the Mikisew Cree First Nation says people caught looting evacuated homes and businesses in the northern Alberta community of Fort Chipewyan will be banished.

In a video update posted Wednesday evening, Chief Billy-Joe Tuccaro said he had received reports of potential looting in the hamlet, which remains under evacuation due to a out-of control wildfire burning nearby.
