NO INJURIES: The cause of a fire that severely damaged the interior of a home in Whiskey Creek on the weekend remains unclear, but the owners suspect an electrical problem. The fire broke out Saturday afternoon at the home of Val Bellwood while her son, Scott MacDonald was in his room upstairs. “I was working out,” he said. “At first I thought a breaker went because my music went off and then my step dad came up and asked if I was cooking anything because it smelt like burning, and I said no.” The two men went to investigate the smell, only to find the dining room downstairs engulfed in flames. Coombs firefighter Arron Poirier said the cause of the fire remains under investigation. He said nobody was injured, but the house sustained significant smoke damage to the interior, as well as some flame damage at the rear of the house. Bellwood said the home was insured.
