makkovik Fire Nov3_11.JPG Makkovik Fire - RCMP photo Fire cut through a houose in Makkovik on Wednesday morning. Polic and the fire department were called and told of the fire. The local volunteer fire department kept the fire from spreading to a new home construction only feet away. The residents of the older home returned to find the house filled with smoke. The fire spread quickly through the home giving the volunteer fire department challenges in battling the blaze from different angles. When it was all said and done and the fire was extinguished, only the burnt shell of the residence remained. Luckily there was no loss of life. The cause into the blaze is still under investigation although police are not suspecting any foul play at this time.
