Earlier this year, the community of Slave Lake suffered nearly $700 million in damage as a fire ripped through the town. Nearly 7,000 people were evacuated in one of the most devastating blazes in Canadian history.

Now, the Alberta government has released its investigation into the fire, and the information is grim.

APTN National News reporter Keith Laboucan has the details.
