Homeowners in the Terrace area are being advised to check their chimneys after last month’s heavy snowfall.
The warning comes from the Thornhill Volunteer Fire Department after a house fire near Lakelse Lake early Wednesday morning.
Chief Wes Patterson says the fire spread from a damaged chimney to the attic of the Kroyer Road home.
Patterson says it’s always a good idea to check your chimney periodically.
Patterson says the two residents of the home escaped without injury, but the house did suffer extensive roof and smoke damage.
