Fire department says they got the call just after midnight
At least two people are dead as the result of a house fire in Pubnico Head, N.S., RCMP say.
Troy Amirault, deputy chief with the West Pubnico Fire Department, said they got the call just after midnight early Sunday morning about a fire on Highway 3 not far from Pubnico, N.S.
He said some people were already out of the home and being treated by paramedics and he believed some people were taken to hospital.
Crews battled the fire for two hours but the home was completely destroyed, he said.
"The flames were coming out through the roof and through the upstairs windows and through the downstairs windows," he said.
RCMP have not said how many people died. They said in a news release that there will be a news conference in Yarmouth at 2 p.m.
