Westmoreland house fire sends three to hospital
A 9-1-1 call just after 5 a.m. on the rainy morning of Friday, January 15, alerted first-responders to a fire in a single story bungalow home on the northwest corner of Yukon Street at S.E. 18th Avenue in Westmorland.
Woodstock's Truck 25 and Westmoreland's Engine 20 responded, and the fire was rapidly brought under control. The occupants of the home, two adults and a child, were transported by ambulance to Emanuel Hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation.
PF&R added that a pet guinea pig was also rescued from the house "and seems to be doing fine".
The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
