Cawston home completely destroyed by flames

Fire destroyed home

A fire Sunday, Jan. 29 destroyed a house and left its occupants uninjured but without a home.

The Keremeos Volunteer Fire Department responded to the blaze at a two-story home, which was fully involved and the roof was beginning to collapse when crews arrived.

Fire chief Jordy Bosscha said there were luckily no injuries, as the occupants made it out safely. In total, 17 Keremeos firefighters responded.

It took six hours total to take down the fire, including clean up and debriefing. RCMP and BC Emergency Health Services also responded.

Bosscha would like to thank the nearby CrowsNest Vineyards for providing coffee and sandwiches to the first responders.
