Fourteen firefighters and three fire engines responded to a house fire early in the morning on Sunday, Sept. 11.

Fourteen firefighters and three fire engines responded to a house fire early in the morning on Sunday, Sept. 11.

At 2:30 a.m. the Fort St. James volunteer fire department got the call and when they arrived, the house was already fully involved, according to Fire Chief Rob Bennett.

The firefighters managed to get the fire under control by 3:30 a.m. and spent the rest of the night completely extinguishing the blaze.

The fire crews were wrapping up and completing their investigation until 9 a.m. the next morning.

While the house was being lived in, no one was home at the time of the fire.

The cause of the fire was undetermined due to how hot the fire had burned according to Chief Bennett.

The house was being rented by Hank Prince, according to Nak’azdli Band and was owned by another band member.

The owner did not return phone calls prior to press deadline, so it is as yet unknown whether there was any insurance on the residence.
