Iqaluit homeowner finds kids making a fire under her house
Barking dog alerted Jaz Archambault to smoke
An Iqaluit homeowner says she came close to losing her home this week when a group of children started a fire underneath her house.
JazArchambault says she heard her dog barking and then smelled smoke, so she went outside to check.
She discovered a group of young girls starting a campfire beneath her house.
"We feel lucky that our dog warned us to this," she says. "Certainly with a family and a home and all our memories in this home it could have been a lot worse."
Archambault says four girls, who looked about eight to 10 years old, were building a fort beneath her house.
She says she doesn't think they were trying to harm her property, but she wonders why their parents weren't around to watch them.
