TWO PEOPLE escaped without injury from a fire that destroyed a house on Old Remo Road this morning.

Police arrived to find the residence fully engulfed in flames, said Terrace RCMP spokesperson Const. Angela Rabut.

After the residents escaped, the man made a boundary around the house with a piece of machinery to prevent the fire from spreading, she said.

Terrace RCMP, BC Ambulance, BC Hydro, and the Ministry of Forestry were onscene also.

The house was out of the fire protection zone, so neither Terrace Fire Department nor Thornhill Fire and Rescue responded, said Rabut.

It appears the fire started on the roof, and is not suspicious in nature.
