A photo of the house fire south of Williams Road between Gilbert and No. 3 roads was circulating on social media Thursday.
The RCMP told the Richmond News they assisted in dealing with the blaze in the 7500 block of Petts Road, near Maple Lane Elementary, Wednesday around 7:50 p.m., but the cause remains unclear.
Police said they can’t release more details at this time.
