Mountain View Sub Fire – Damaged estimated to be over $1 million

There’s still no word on the cause of an early morning house fire yesterday which destroyed what is believed to have been a large two story home northwest of Fort St. John.

However, Fort St. John Fire Chief Fred Burrows now says the damage is likely to run well in excess of a million dollars… It is believed the fire broke out about two o’clock and ironically it was first spotted and reported by Chief Burrows… [asset|aid=1093|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=403f7f06ca012bffe78d878857cb479e-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 Lake 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.
