Fire totally destroyed a trailer in Barriere on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 20. The lone male occupant was not home at the time and there were no injuries. However, the occupant is believed to have had no fire insurance.

According to Barriere fire chief Al Kirkwood, the call came in at 2:45 p.m. on Sunday. Nine Barriere firefighters responded but the trailer in Riverland Trailer Park was fully involved when they arrived.

They were helped by nine members from Chu Chua Fire Department under a recently renewed mutual aid agreement with the Simpcw First Nation.

RCMP and BC Ambulance also attended the scene.

The fire is not considered suspicious and the cause is believed to be a wood stove.
