Canadian Red Cross volunteers were assisting the family with emergency lodging and purchases like food, clothing, and some other basics, according to Red Cross spokesman Dan Bedell.

Nackawic Fire and Rescue said in its post, “Losing a residence to a fire is a difficult thing to live through, especially at this time of year. Thankfully, everyone involved is safe and thank you to our North York neighbours for the assistance.”
