Mobile home blazed near Forest Grove

Fire crews on extinguished flames, ambulance crew attended to injured occupant

Fire crews are currently battling a mobile home fire in the 4400-block of Canim-Hendrix Lake Road that was spotted and called in around 8:30 this morning (Dec. 6). The two occupants are reported out of the building

Fire crews battled a mobile home fire in the 4400-block of Canim-Hendrix Lake Road in the early hours of this morning’s commute (Dec. 6).

The two occupants made it out of the building, including an elderly woman who was treated on scene for minor injuries. She and the other occupant were both transported to hospital by ambulance.

100 Mile House Free Press publisher Martina Dopf says she was driving into work at about 8:30 a.m. this morning (Dec. 6) when she noticed smoke coming out from a mobile home on Canim-Hendrix Lake Road near Forest Grove.

“I stopped right away and tried to call 9-1-1; however, there was no cell service. Then I saw a lady walking out of the trailer, calling for help.”

Dopf says she gave a signal to the woman, who was beyond hearing range, then immediately ran to the house across the road and asked the residents to call 9-1-1 on their land line.

“By that time, several vehicles had stopped and I noticed people walking up towards the fully engulfed trailer and checking on the resident. They said everybody was out of the trailer.”

The neighbour then approached the scene of the burning trailer, notified Dopf that he had reached 9-1-1 and confirmed help was on its way.

Fire crews from Forest Grove and 100 Mile House attended the scene and successfully extinguished the blaze, but were unable to save the home.

BC Ambulance Service were also called to the scene, both for treating the injured woman and later for Fire Crew Maintenance support.

100 Mile House RCMP also attended.
