Fort St. John firefighters responded to a Rose Prairie Road house fire last night, that for the moment is being treated as suspicious.

 

That’s the word from Fire Chief Fred Burrows, who says the city fire department got the call just after 11 0’clock and crews were on site for about three and a half hours.

Upon arrival they found the unoccupied home at 13083 Rose Prairie Road fully involved and efforts to control the fire were hampered by an overnight wind, which Environment Canada says peaked at 43 kilometers per hour.

The preliminary loss has been estimated in excess of $300,000.

However, Chief Burrows says any further announcement on the cause will only be released, after RCMP and fire investigators have had a chance to conduct a daylight examination of the scene.
