Fire destroys home

A rural Lumby mobile home was destroyed by fire Wednesday night.

Volunteer firefighters responded to the blaze in the 700 block of Fraser Road, in the Whitevale subdivision, shortly after 11:30 p.m.

“I was first arriving and when I got there the home was fully engulfed,” said Lumby fire chief Tony Clayton. “The home is a total loss.”

The single male occupant of the home got out safely, and he managed to get his dog out of the home as well.

“The fire woke him up, he got out and woke up his neighbours to make them aware, he didn’t want to see anybody get stuck in their homes,” said Clayton.

Nobody was injured in the blaze. A neighbouring house did suffer very minimal damage as a result of the fire.

Thirteen firefighters helped battle the blaze until about 5 a.m. Thursday.

The fire is not suspicious and is being classified as accidental.
