A house caught fire sometime over the lunch hour on Otto Drive on Latham Island Yellowknife. The extent of fire is unknown and so are most of the facts. Bylaw and Fire Department have the bridge to Latham Island completely blocked off. As Latham Island does not have running water in the winter, all fire trucks including the tanker trucks are on scene. Updates as we get them. We hope no one has been hurt.
According to a City Manager that spoke with CJCD a resident of the home located on the corner of Otto Drive called authorities about a possible chimney fire. No one was hurt, but it is still unknown as to the extend of the damage.
If you know or hear anything please pass it along to us. We want to help the family anyway we can, especially at this time of year.
