House Fire in Chester.

A house fire early this morning near Chester Basin, Nova Scotia has sent all four members of a family to hospital for treatment of burns and smoke inhalation.
Two teenagers were sent directly to the IWK Health Centre in Halifax while their parents were being treated in Bridgewater.
Canadian Red Cross volunteers met briefly with the parents on-scene and will follow-up with assistance if needed once they're released from hospital.
The home, at 5109 Highway 3 a few kilometres west of Chester, was destroyed despite the efforts of five area volunteer fire departments.
The cause of the fire is under investigation
