EDMONTON — A family was left homeless Tuesday night after a fire destroyed their house near Rimbey.

The fire broke out around supper time, on a rural property about 30 kilometres northwest of the central Alberta town.

The family was not home at the time of the fire, but Rimbey Fire Chief John Weisgerber said a few family pets may not have made it out of the house.

Fire crews remained on scene late Tuesday night dousing hot spots.

At this time it’s not known how the fire started.
