The local fire department urges residents not to re-enter a burning building
The Huntsville/Lake of Bays Fire Department wants to remind you to never enter to re-enter a burning building. This comes after someone had died in a recent house fire in Ottawa. The person had escaped safely, but went back inside to try and save a pet. The fire department is asking you to have a fire emergency plan ready. Fire Chief Steve Hernen says making sure everyone in your home knows exactly what to do to escape before a fire occurs is just as important as having working fire alarms.
