Dan Bedell of the Canadian Red Cross said the couple and their 4-year-old son were away at time so there were no injuries from the fire. The cause is under investigation

The Red Cross was helping with emergency purchases including food. The family is staying with relatives while awaiting an assessment from insurers.
