Another Mount Pleasant home destroyed by fire

by Keith Corcoran

For the second time in two weeks, volunteer emergency crews dealt with a house fire in Mount Pleasant, Lunenburg County.

There were no injuries as a result of the Mount Pleasant Road blaze, called into first response agencies before 9 a.m., January 6, but two men are displaced.

The call occurred in the district served by the LaHave volunteer fire department. Jonathan Mulock, a captain and the call's incident commander, said the cause of the fire is classified as undetermined because of the level of destruction.

Four neighbouring departments were requested to the scene after the first-arriving officer with LaHave confirmed a working structure fire was on the go. A disaster assistance volunteer with the emergency social services charity, Canadian Red Cross, met with the men but the insurance provider and friends of the pair are stepping in to help.

Back on Christmas Eve, three people were displaced from their older two-storey home when it was destroyed by fire about a kilometre away from the January 6 call.

Traffic restrictions were in place while crews worked the scene and investigated the cause of the fire. Crews were on scene for about four hours.
