Big house fire in Christina Lake Tuesday night.

Christina Lake Fire Rescue, with help from the Grand Forks Fire Department, responded just after 8pm.

Fortunately all of the occupants were out of the house safely, and firefighting efforts were successful in protecting other nearby houses and the heavily treed area.

Officials say the fire was difficult to fight and spread quickly due to the extensive use of decorative wood finishing inside and outside.

No word on the cause of the blaze.
