No injuries were sustained as a result of the blaze, largely due to the quick-thinking actions of an unknown citizen, who noticed the house fire and alerted the occupants of the home,” said Sgt. Betty Watson, who commands the Golden RCMP detachment.

“The cause of the fire remains under investigation at this time.”

The Golden RCMP is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the person who spotted the blaze and alerted the occupants. Investigators want to speak with the Good Samaritan. Anyone with any additional information is asked to call the Golden RCMP at 250-344-2221.
