Attawapiskat fire leaves almost 70 homeless

 


Flights left from Attawapiskat on Saturday to transport approximately 70 people forced from their homes by a fire in the First Nation community in northern Ontario — a fire that appears to have been caused by a candle used during a power outage.

Officials declared an emergency in the remote James Bay Coast community on Friday after a fire broke out earlier this week in a set of trailers being used as temporary housing due to a sewage system break.
