Bruce Rohn (centre) using hose on fire during burning of buildings on Jake Reimer farm, BC Hydro's clearing of Renata townsite in advance of flooding of the Arrow Lakes valley, 1967. Notes from Bruce Rohn: 'Matt Rohn house on left, Joe Gray house on right – These 3 places is where we started to find stone artifacts as the clearing and digging up of these properties progressed. Much of our Renata collection came from these 3 places.'
