That family will be staying with relatives in the community and has already received assistance from Emergency Social Services.  The Salvation Army will also be providing the family with clothing and other house old items.  If you’d like to make a donation to the family, you can contact the Dawson Creek Salvation Army on Monday.Pouce Coupe volunteer Fire Fighters were on the scene for over 5 hours with the temperature as low as minus 42.Advertisement If you have any photos or video of the fire, e-mail contact@energeticcity-beta.mystagingwebsite.comPhoto:  More pictures of the damage in Pouce Coupe – Submitted Phyllis KalmbachView Pouce Coupe Fire in a larger maplast_img read more
