·1 min read

Police and the N.W.T.'s fire marshal are investigating a house fire in Fort Simpson that began at around 7:30 a.m. on Monday.

Fort Simpson's fire department extinguished the fire, but the house is said to have sustained major damage. There were no reports of casualties.

The cause has yet to be formally determined.

A GoFundMe online fundraiser has been launched for Martina Norwegian, the owner of the home.

Norwegian told Cabin Radio on Monday she was in Yellowknife when the fire happened and was travelling home to assess the damage.
