“The houses were fairly close together so the fire was intense enough on the side of the house to extend into the next one,” Fire Chief for the City of Dawson Creek, Shorty Smith said.

One home-owner is covered by insurance while the other is unknown, according to Smith.

The fire department received the call a little after 5:20 p.m. yesterday afternoon and worked to extinguish the fire for nearly six hours.
