Local Jennifer Bernard took these photos on Friday, Nov. 16, from the balcony of her neighbours home.
“I could not see any flames, but there sure was a ton of smoke,” said Bernard.
A male youth noticed the fire in his home when he arrived there from work at approximately 7:30 p.m., and called the fire department.
Fire Chief Eric Gregson, of the Princeton Volunteer Fire Brigade said that “the fire is currently under investigation.” The fire began in the ground floor level of the home located in the Allison Flats area of town.
FortisBC employees Aaron Gould and Jason Earle were called in immediately to cut off the power supply to the home.
Firefighters remained on scene until 11 p.m. Chief Gregson reported that no one human was hurt in the fire, however there were pet cats that did not survive.
