MISCOUCHE, P.E.I. – A man escaped a house fire without injury, when a fire broke out at his residence early Sunday morning. His family members were no home at the time.
Miscouche firefighters responded to a fire in a residential building in Miscouche. The call came in around 2:30 a.m. that there was a basement fire at 38 Main Drive.
