A family rejoiced as they returned to their Ingolf home that they were told was destroyed by wildfire.
Cam and Cheryl McLachlin went home for the first time Tuesday, 12 days after fleeing with their three children when the raging wildfire spread across Caddy Lake.
The fire north of Caddy is now under control, and the evacuation order for Beresford lake and Wallace Lake were lifted Tuesday afternoon.
Most residents of Ingolf returned by Tuesday morning. By Tuesday evening the whole area was open to the public.
