WALLACE STATION – Firefighters battled an early morning fire Wednesday in Wallace Station.

“The house was already down when we got there, so we haven’t been able to determine the cause of the fire yet,” Wallace Fire Chief Glenn Jamieson said. 

Firefighters from Wallace, Pugwash, Tatamagouche and Wentworth responded to the fire at around 1:20 a.m.

“There were 30 to 40 firefighters altogether,” Jamieson added.

A car and garage was also destroyed in the fire.

The firefighters extinguished the fire and returned to their stations at just after 4 a.m. The house belonged to Aaron Tuttle of Wallace Station.

    I hope this information helps. When it comes to our property, what do we expect in case of loss (hurricane, tornado, earthquake, flood, fire, etc.)? The disaster itself is news. What happens after the dust settles is the story: the aftermath shock. Here is something the public should know: with a little curiosity you can mitigate that shock, in case it happens. Insurance policyholders/disaster survivors, need to be informed of access to basic rights and information--equality. The internet reaches far more people than anyone would have ever imagined, though difficult to gather those willing to pause, to inspect, to further...to think on their own. And yet, much is available gratis!
