May 23, 2020 - 11:13 AM

The Golden RCMP is looking to find the person who may have saved the lives of the occupants inside of a home on fire early Thursday morning.

"On May 21, shortly before 4 a.m., Golden RCMP were called to assist the Golden Fire Department who were responding to a report of a structure fire in the 1300-block of 10th Street South," according to the RCMP in a news release.

"No injuries were sustained as a result of the blaze, largely due to the quick thinking actions of an unknown citizen, who noticed the house fire and alerted the occupants of the home," said Sgt. Betty Watson, Golden RCMP detachment commander, in the media release.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation, according to the release.

Golden RCMP is requesting the public’s assistance to identify the person who spotted the blaze and alerted the occupants. Investigators would like to speak with this person. Anyone with any additional information is asked to call the Golden RCMP at 250-344-2221.
