Four people displaced in northwestern N.B. fires

A pair of weekend fires in northwestern New Brunswick has left four people temporarily homeless, according to the Canadian Red Cross.

A man and woman were displaced after fire broke out in their home on Grand River Road in Saint-Léonard just after midnight Saturday night.

The woman was treated in hospital for burns, and the couple are awaiting a damage assessment by insurers.

Meanwhile, two men were forced out by a fire on Theriault Road in Sainte-Anne-de-Madawaska over the noon hour Monday.

They are staying with relatives for now.
