An early morning blaze had Terrace and Thornhill firefighters busy.
A neighbour of the house on the 4700 block of Straume Avenue reported the fire around 2:00 a.m.
The house was filled with smoke by time the Terrace crews arrived, with Thornhill crews provided assistance.
Terrace Fire Chief John Klie says the weather posed a number of challenges.
Chief Klie also has advice for how to stay fire safe during the Christmas season.
No one was at home when the fire broke out, and the cause is under investigation.
