House fire starts in dryer

The Williams Lake fire department responded to a house fire on Foster Way Sunday night around 11 p.m.

“The fire started in a clothes dryer and spread to the washer and part of the room as well,” Fire Chief Des Webster said Monday.

“The fire damage was contained to the laundry room, however, there was smoke damage to the rest of the basement.”

Webster said once again it was a working smoke alarm that alerted the residents to the fire.

“The resident tried to extinguish the fire with a fire extinguisher, but was unable. Not sure of the cause or the cost of the damage.”
