Springhill fire leaves family of 4 homeless

A fire in Springhill, N.S., leaves a family of four homeless.

A couple and two children escaped injury but lost their home when an overnight fire destroyed a two-storey wood-frame house in Springhill, N.S.

There was no word on the cause of the fire, which was reported at 1 a.m. Sunday

The Canadian Red Cross arranged emergency purchases of clothes and food for the family and provided teddy bears to comfort the children.

The family has been in touch with insurance adjusters to arrange temporary accommodation.
