Fire damages home

Fire crews were called to a home on Stirling Court, Saturday morning where a chimney fire had spread into the roof, causing an estimated $50,000 in damage.

According to a news release from the city, the call came in at 3:10 a.m. from the homeowner who said smoke alarms woke him up.

When firefighters arrived in the Niven Lake neighbourhood, grey smoke was spotted coming from the street-side roof gable. The fire had spread into the roof and more personnel were called to the scene. One firefighter was treated for a broken ankle at Stanton Territorial Hospital and later released.

After six years of filming Ice Pilots NWT, its producers are calling it quits.

"We mutually decided we wanted to end the season while it was still a good series," said Omnifilm executive producer David Gullason.

He said the show will end with a special feature, celebrating 70 years since D-Day. Cast members and crew jump out of a DC-3, the same type of plane used by Canadian soldiers in Normandy.

The last season premiers Oct. 29.

Canadian North reduces trans-Arctic service

In response to what a company spokesperson described as seasonal variances and soft market conditions, Canadian North has eliminated one day of its previously scheduled three-day-per-week Edmonton to Iqaluit service, which included a stop in Rankin Inlet.

The Wednesday service has been eliminated, effective Sept. 24. Previously, the carrier flew Monday, Wednesday and Friday. According to Canadian North, the Monday westbound flight will now depart Iqaluit at 1:30 p.m. and arrive in Edmonton at 7:40 p.m. Monday eastbound and Friday flights will continue to operate as usual. Monday and Friday flights will continue to serve Rankin Inlet, as they did previously.
