Deliberately lit fire could have gotten out of control

Dear editor,

I am sincerely sorry for being involved with lighting the fire on Pritchard Road.

Dear editor,

I am sincerely sorry for being involved with lighting the fire on Pritchard Road, and to those who live near the location where the fire took place.

It was ignorant of me to believe I had no true part in it, because even though I did not personally light the fire, I did not tell the authorities who started it.

The fire could have gotten out of control very fast, if not for the efforts of the Comox Fire Department, which I would like to thank for their heroic abilities to take action fast and make it effective. I would like to apologize to the taxpayers who evidently had to pay for the incident. It is unfair and I am truly sorry for this idiotic act.

Also I would like to thank the students who stayed and helped the fire department put out the blaze, something I should have done.

Words cannot express the stress this event has caused, and how it has affected not only the potential victims and their families, but us the instigators and our families. I am hoping community service will fix this situation and we can now look towards the future.
