The Dauphin Fire Department (DFD) spent 11 hours on the scene of yesterday's house fire to ensure the blaze was fully extinguished.

Crews first responded to the scene around 6 a.m. Thursday morning.

The fire was across the street from the DRCSS at Mountain Road and Kerr Avenue, which led to Mountain View School Division to close the school and move classes online due to smoke accumulation in the building.

The Dauphin high school will reopen today for regular classes after a notice sent out by the Division states the air quality has returned to normal in the school.
