A Kenora-area couple awoke to smoke yesterday morning. Fire crews from Pellatt and McKenzie-Clearwater arrived to find the home fully-engulfed in flames, and the roof was caving in.
No injuries have been reported -- and the couple have a place to stay -- but they're still taking stock of their losses. A cause for the fire has not yet been determined.
Firefighters got the call around 7 a.m., but didn't have much of a chance to save the home. However, they were able to prevent the flames from spreading to neighbours.
