House fire in Natuashish


Natuashish RCMP is investigating a house fire that occurred over the weekend.

On Saturday, police arrived at a house in the community, which was fully engulfed in flames.

The local fire department attended to this matter but the fire was too involved to save the residence.

Attempts by the Fire Crew to extinguish the flames were unsuccessful and the entire house was completely destroyed by the fire. 

A nearby house received some heat damage. No other buildings were affected. 

The owner tried to fight the fire that started in the basement area of the residence but could not extinguish same.

Police are investigating to determine if young children playing in the basement had anything to do with the fire.

The house and contents loss is estimated in excess of $150,000.
