Two hurt in house fire on Nicole Ave. in Prince George

Two people were injured in a house fire on Nicole Avenue early Monday morning.

Just before 6 a.m. Prince George Fire Rescue crews, responded to a structure fire in the 2900 block of Nicole Ave. Upon arrival, crews found heavy fire and smoke, coming from the back and front of the structure.

The three occupants of the structure, had safely exited the home.

The structure beside the burning residence had also started to burn. Crews were quickly able to knock that fire down and save that structure. The main burning structure was fought from the exterior of the home. The fire conditions were too unstable to do an interior attack.

This was a three-hall response with one ladder truck and two pumper trucks. A total of 16 firefighters responded to this fire.

There was one firefighter taken to hospital, with smoke inhalation. There is one dog and one cat still not accounted for, inside the home.

There was extensive damage done to the home. Estimated dollar loss is over $150,000.00. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
