Firefighters from the Sainte-Barbe Fire Department visibly saved the life of a man who was sleeping during a fire in a residence located at 90, chemin du Bord de l’Eau in Sainte-Barbe on Friday, April 16th at around 12:50 am.
As soon as the firefighters arrived on site, the fire raged on an exterior wall and threatened the attic. Quickly, the sappers of the Sainte-Barbe Fire Department and the police began a quick exploration of the house. This operation proved to be successful since the occupant was sleeping. The man was therefore evacuated.
No incidents were reported during this intervention. The damage to the building is considerable. At the height of the blaze, around thirty firefighters were present to fight the flames. The local fire department was able to count on those of Godmanchester, Huntingdon, Saint-Stanislas-de-Kostka and Saint-Louis-de-Gonzague.
