Fire destroys Spallumcheen home

Nothing more than a blackened frame remains following a house fire in Spallumcheen Friday, but everyone is OK.

Flames ripped through a secondary house on a Schubert Road property Friday morning, completely engulfing the home.

“The lone occupant was inside at the time when he noticed some smoke and got out,” said Armstrong Spallumcheen Fire Department chief Ian Cummings. “By the time we arrived the building was fully involved.”

Crews managed to contain the blaze to the one structure, preventing any spread to the neighbouring home, shed or horse stalls.

Investigators have not determined a cause of fire, but say the two-storey home is a complete write-off.

“It was fully destroyed,” said Cummings.
