House fire: No one injured

A house caught fire this week. It was -35 degrees and the firefighters had to struggle with frozen pipes for a few minutes.

Thankfully there was no wind, the fire was contained to one building.

Inuvik has volunteer firefighters. They keep cell-phones or radios on them during their day jobs, and can rush out in case of emergency.

The dry climate makes buildings prone to fires.
