Fire damages Stellarton home

The Canadian Red Cross says a man and his five-year-old daughter were forced from their home in Stellarton on Wednesday afternoon due to a fire.

The blaze damaged the older, two-storey house on Cameron's Lane around 1:30 p.m.

The Red Cross says there were no injuries from the fire.

The pair are staying with nearby relatives for now, and disaster volunteers are helping them with emergency purchases of clothing, some other basics, and a comfort toy for the girl.
