Fire destroys family home on McCabe Road

No known cause of fire yet

A single family home has been destroyed by fire on McCabe Road.

A blaze erupted on Sunday (July 3) afternoon.

Smithers Fire Deputy Chief Alle De Vries said 20 of their members attended with four fire trucks.

“With the high temperatures and a fully involved structure fire, it was a challenge for the firefighters,” he added.

Firefighters had to get water from Canyon Creek.

“We had to set up a water shuttle and Telkwa Fire also responded to assist us with water supply,” De Vries said.

No fatalities and no injuries were reported.

The investigation continues into the cause of the fire and there is no estimated cost of damage yet.
