Fire claims Boshkung home
A house on Lake Boshkung north of Carnarvon was destroyed by fire on the afternoon of Friday, Feb. 1. Algonquin Highlands fire chief Mike Cavanagh told the Times the department received the call about the fire at about 2 p.m.
“The fire was well developed on our arrival and crews extinguished the fire,” Cavanagh said in an email. “We had mutual aid from Minden and Dysart to assist with the water shuttle. The house is a total loss.”
Cavanagh said there were no injuries to occupants or firefighters, and that the cause of the fire was under investigation.
There was another fire later that day, when a fire that started in a hot tub on the deck of a house on Kawagama Lake caused $30,000 worth of damage.
