Fire destroys home after crews go home

A late night fire has destroyed a home in Enderby.

The blaze broke out at 434 Mabel Lake Road around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday evening, and members of the Enderby Fire Department quickly responded. Unfortunately, after the fire had been mopped up, it broke out again early Thursday morning.

“We had a fully involved structure fire and it rekindled,” says Deputy Chief Shane Williamson.

“We had a security team watch the place while we did our mop up and then it rekindled around two-thirty in the morning.”

Williamson is unsure how that happened, but notes that Fire Chief Kevin Alstad returned to the property Thursday morning to possibly conduct an investigation. Calls to Alstad were not immediately returned.

The original fire started in the basement, and four people were able to safely evacuate the home with no injuries reported, but a family pet is still believed as missing.
