FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Residents of a modular home on Red Creek Road are now homeless as it was destroyed by fire on Thursday afternoon.
According to a neighbour, Annette Alexander, an elderly couple lost their home after it quickly burned to the ground.
Alexander says the fire took place at around 12:30 p.m., and the grandson of the elderly couple was able to save the grandmother and had enough time to grab her oxygen tank. Alexander adds that everyone, including a dog, was able to get out safely. The only one that was unaccounted for after the fire was a cat that lived inside the home.
It is reported that there was no insurance on the home.
As a precaution, the grandmother was transferred to the hospital for observation.
The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
