Community Featured Online First

STELLARTON – Two people were displaced by a weekend fire that destroyed a 120-year-old house in Stellarton.

An elderly man  and his adult son are staying with a friend for now and have been helped by Canadian Red Cross volunteers with emergency purchases like clothing and food.

Both were briefly away from the house on Rutherford Street Extension so there were no injuries from the fire, reported around 8 p.m. Friday.
