Residence destroyed by fire on Redkenn Drive

Nineteen firefighters contained a blaze that claimed a building on Redkenn Drive Sunday Dec. 13.

According to Dysart et al fire department about $1 million of damage was created by the fire which had already engulfed the house by the time the firefighters arrived around 11 p.m.

"Efforts were concentrated on a garage and keeping the fire from spreading into the bush" fire chief Miles Maughan said in the press release.

Firefighters worked for nine hours putting out hotspots at the Redstone Lake property. The fire marshal was called but will not be investigating the fire.

The cause of the fire is not known. No injuries were reported and no one was home at the time of the fire.
