Fire forces family from new home

It was a terrible start for a couple and two children moving Saturday night into a house containing two apartments in Amherst.

It was a terrible start for a couple and two children moving Saturday night into a house containing two apartments in Amherst.

The family was among those forced out a few hours later by fire. Two out-of-town relatives helping them move also had to flee, as did the tenant of the second apartment in the two-storey home.

The Canadian Red Cross was helping all seven, providing emergency motel lodging and food for the balance of the weekend.

There were no injuries and the house was extensively damaged.
