A St-Lazare family lost their home to fire yesterday afternoon.
Calls came in to 911 shortly after 1:30 yesterday afternoon and by the time St-Lazare firefighters arrived the fire was fully engaged.
Firefighters from five other municipalities, including Hudson and Rigaud were called in to battle the blaze at a farmette at the western end of St-Angelique near Montee Harwood.
Smoke from the fire could be seen several kilometres away and the house was completely destroyed.
In addition to the six responding Fire Departments, the Community Emergency Measures Unit was called in as well as the Red Cross who assisted the victims.
No one was injured in the fire neither were any of the animals on the property.
The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
