A fire out on the Cecil Lake Road has destroyed a home.
The Fort St. John RCMP were on scene as a house at a rural property between the 245 road and 247 road burned completely down. Since the property is out of the Fort St. John fire protection area, the Fire Department did not attend.
Local residents were on hand with water trucks to help extinquish the blaze and ensure the fire did not spread to another building beside it. The 40 to 60 km/h winds did help spread the fire into a nearby field but it was quickly put out.
RCMP have confirmed that no one was in the house at the time of the fire and that the cause of the blaze is still unknown.
