Norman Wells RCMP are investigating a house fire that occurred Sunday.
In a news release issued yesterday they state that upon arrival officers assisted the Norman Wells Fire Department by evacuating houses in the area and by providing traffic control.
They add that three occupants of the home were able to get out without injury.
The Fire Department fought the blaze and quickly contained it to prevent spreading to surrounding buildings; however, the house is a total loss.
There is no word on a cause.
A woman who lives right next door reportedly says she was not warned by any officials about the fire and was only told to get out by a friend.
Colleen Stevens reportedly says neither firefighters nor police seemed concerned about her and her son’s safety.
In a news report, she says firefighters are not properly trained and wants town council to do something about it.
RCMP say they are leading the investigation and are working with the Office of the Fire Marshal.
Anyone with information on the fire is asked to call Norman Wells RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
