We should find out tomorrow if the Transportation Safety Board has any evidence that a passing freight train could have sparked the wildfire that destroyed Lytton.

The board has called a news conference for tomorrow morning, one hour after it posts the results of its investigation on its website.

Two people died in the June 30th blaze that tore through the Fraser Canyon village, destroying most of it and causing an estimated 77 million dollars in insured damage.

Safety board investigators were sent to the village after the RCMP and wildfire service shared information about a possible cause of the flames.
