An early morning house fire has destroyed what is believed to have been a large two story home northwest of Fort St. John.

It is believed the fire broke out about two o’clock this morning and ironically it was first spotted and reported by Fort St. John Fire Chief Fred Burrows… [asset|aid=1085|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=7927a700667e870b51a19b5c694dd8ca-Chief Burrows_1_Pub.mp3]

It turns out it was the latter and, Chief Burrows says a total of four units from the Fort St. John and Charlie fire departments responded and, were on the scene for about four hours. He also says there was nobody home at the time, there were no injuries and, the flames did not spread to any other structures.

Its too early in the investigation to speculate on the cause but, the Chief has put a conservative estimate of four hundred thousand dollars on the damage.
