Nanaimo family of four displaced by house fire
A family of four has been forced from their home by a fire that broke out in a Nanaimo home late Wednesday.
Firefighters responded shortly after 11 p.m. to a home at 2127 Lang Cres. when one of the residents entered the house and discovered smoke in the residence.
Capt. Ennis Mond, fire prevention officer, said the interior of the home suffered heavy smoke and heat damage.
"Structural damage, there was very little, but it's going to have to be stripped down," Mond said.
Mond, who was in the early stage of his investigation Thursday morning, had not determined what sparked the fire and was just beginning the process of eliminating a list possible causes.
A couple and their two children living in the home have been displaced by the fire, but they have insurance and no one was injured.
Mond also said the family has lodging.
