Fire causes 'extensive damage' to Lumby home

September 08, 2019 - 11:32 AM

LUMBY - No one was injured in a late-night house fire in Lumby.

Lumby and District Fire Department Chief Tony Clayton said more than 20 firefighters responded to the fire in the Whitevale subdivision around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7.

“It was fully-engulfed upon our arrival,” Clayton said. “They (the homeowners) were home but everyone got out."

After the bulk of the fire was doused around 2 a.m., a skeleton crew remained on scene overnight to hit the hotspots. Firefighters had cleared the scene by 9 a.m. Sunday.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation but is not considered suspicious.
