The News (New Glasgow) - - PICTOU COUNTY/ATLANTIC - UP­PER KEN­NET­COOK

A home has been com­pletely de­stroyed by fire in Up­per Ken­net­cook, but luck­ily no­body was hurt and the home­owner’s horses have all been ac­counted for.

Ken­net­cook Fire Chief Steve White said the call for the fire came in around 3:56 a.m. on Sept. 10, 2017. White said the struc­ture was en­gulfed in flames by the time fire­fight­ers ar­rived on scene.

“The own­ers of the house weren’t home, there was no­body in­side,” White said. “It burned down to the base­ment.”

The house, which was on Miller Road in Up­per Ken­net­cook, is a to­tal loss.

White said the home­own­ers had horses that were on the prop­erty and they have all been ac­counted for and are cur­rently stay­ing some­where else.

He added that the cause of the fire is un­known at this point.

Fire­fight­ers from Ken­net­cook, Noel, Nine Mile River, Mait­land, Raw­don, Elms­dale, Lantz, En­field, Gore, HRM Sta­tion 40 (Dutch Set­tle­ment), and more as­sisted with the ef­fort, White said.

White said fire­fight­ers re­mained on scene for ap­prox­i­mately six hours. No­body was in­jured in the blaze.
