UPDATE: Three homes lost in trailer park fire north of Williams Lake

A fire in Wildwood Campsite & trailer park is being attended by emergency services

Three homes were lost in the Wildwood Campsite & Trailer Park after a fire began in one and spread to two other nearby homes Monday afternoon, July 3.

Tabitha Lamarche, manager of the trailer park, said four residents lost their homes and her concern now is with them. She is uncertain if the four residents were insured for those losses.

Wildwood Volunteer Fire Department (WVFD), Williams Lake Fire Department, Miocene Fire Department, BC Emergency Health Services and RCMP attended the fire.

Williams Lake Fire Department (WLFD) reported they dispatched three vehicles and twelve personnel to the scene assisting WVFD after getting the call at 12:50 p.m.

The WLFD vehicles consisted of one backup engine, one backup water tender and one duty truck.

Crews arrived in time to prevent the fire from spreading to more homes within the park.

BC Wildfire Services also had someone monitoring the fire to watch for any spread to surrounding forests.

A witness on scene at the time said the fire started early in the afternoon in one trailer and spread to neighbouring buildings.

The homes lost were at the south end of the park and no one is believed injured in the fires.
