Rossland house fire in the night
A family of four was driven from their home on Victoria Avenue in the early hours of Feb. 22, when neighbours alerted them to the flames and smoke erupting from their roof. Firefighters from Rossland, Trail and Warfield were called at just before 2:30 a.m., and were able to put out the fire and protect neighbouring homes within two hours.
The fire is not regarded as suspicious. Investigators will be working to determine the cause.
Meanwhile, according to a parent of students at Rossland Summit School, the school asked for and received size-specific donations of clothing for the family, and received a generous amount. Thanks go to all the donors.
