“Extensive damage,” is how fire chief Alex Pavcek describes the result of a fire in this trailer home on 4th St. NW in Slave Lake on the morning of Oct. 20. Not much is visible from the outside – a couple of broken windows and some smoke stains. Inside is where most of the damage is.
Pavcek says everyone got out safely, and the Red Cross is helping the family “short term.” Pavcek did not say anything about the cause, but a neighbour says she heard it might have had something to do with a wood stove.
