On Monday afternoon just before 3:00 p.m., Merritt Fire received a call from the 1600 block of Greig Street about a residential structure fire.
Three minutes after the call was received 18 Merritt Firefighters responded to the scene. When crews arrived all occupants of the home had safely evacuated the building and Chief Dave Tomkinson has confirmed to Q101 that there were no injuries sustained.
Crews were then able to contain the blaze to the kitchen area of the home.
As of last night, the cause of the fire was still under investigation.
