KAMLOOPS — A brutal Boxing Day for a family in the North Shuswap after a fire destroyed their house, garage and two vehicles.

Chase RCMP Cpl. Scott Linklater says the blaze broke out yesterday morning on Squilax-Anglemont Road in St. Ives.

"Celista and Anglemont volunteer fire departments arrived on scene to find a house had been lost to fire and a detached garage still burning."

Linklater says the homeowners were out of the community for the holidays when the fire started. 

He says the cause of the fire is unknown but is not considered suspicious.
