DAUPHIN – A family in Dauphin escaped a house fire unharmed thanks to the actions of two RCMP officers.
The fire broke out in a shed behind the house early Sunday morning.
RCMP were dispatched to the scene and noticed the fire was spreading to the house.
A mother and three children were inside and asleep at the time.
Officers knocked on the windows and doors but didn’t get an answer, so they entered the house and woke the family, who were evacuated safely.
Police say the fire was set deliberately.
