Chetwynd trailer home destroyed in Remembrance Day fire


The owner of the trailer, who was present during the time of fire, fortunately walked away without serious injuries, but her pet dog succumbed to injuries and passed away.

The owner says it appears the fire started in the ceiling of her home near the chimney and wood stove, which is said to have been discovered when she tried extinguishing the flames by throwing pots of water.

The trailer, including all contents inside, has been destroyed in this aggressive fire, and at the height of the incident, threatened to engulf nearby vehicles and mobile homes.
