‘It was over before we got there’
Man, daughter homeless after Annapolis County house fire
A man and his 18-year-old daughter are homeless after a fire, that started in the kitchen, got out of control and destroyed their Fundy Shore house Sunday evening.
“Port Lorne Volunteer Fire Department Chief Stephen Wade was first on the scene and said the house was fully engulfed in flame with the roof falling in when he arrived.”
Firefighters from across An- napolis County battled the fire at 443 Ween St., just off Shore Road East.
The call came in to Port Lorne firefighters at about 7:30 p.m. Oct. 21 with Lawrencetown and Bridgetown also called.
“It came in as a kitchen fire that was starting to get out of control,” said Wade. “I was first on scene. When I arrived the windows were all already out of the house and the roof was already in the middle of caving in. It was already a big orange glow on the horizon as soon as you came over the hill. It was over before we got there.”
