The Williams Lake Fire Department (WLFD) were called out to a house fire on Windmill Crescent early Wednesday morning, April 1.

Fire chief Erick Peterson confirmed crews responded to a contents fire on the second level of a building at 4:50 a.m.

“WLFD was able to extinguish quickly and we will return to investigate the fire later today,” he noted, adding no one was injured and the fire does not appear to be suspicious in nature.

Witnesses in the area said the fire was at the same home where police were called last month to investigate a serious assault when a man was assaulted and knocked unconscious. Neighbours say police are often called to the home.
