An elderly Mabel Lake couple is homeless after fire destroyed their house and shop.
The Enderby and District Fire Department responded to a call just before 9 p.m. last Tuesday in the 700 block of Mabel Lake Road.
“We arrived to a fully engulfed structure fire. We managed to save two vehicles and two pigs,” said Chief Kevin Alstad. The two 80-plus year old residents were able to get out of the burning house and to a neighbour’s.

Two missed expiration dates resulted in two legal consequences for a Falkland man.
On Thursday, Nov. 28, one of the rural unit RCMP officers noticed a vehicle parked at the Falkland Petro Canada gas station, noting that its insurance decal had expired in May. After running a motor vehicle check, the officer confirmed that the vehicle did not have insurance.
Shortly thereafter, he watched the vehicle pull out of the gas station and head south towards Vernon, at which point the officer stopped the vehicle and spoke with the driver, whom he’d had previous dealings with.
