South Shore home fire kills three individuals: 

On Nova Scotia’s South Shore, a fire razed a home and killed four individuals early Saturday morning, while two others fled and were taken to hospital.

Some regional fire services got the call about 4 a.m. Saturday and sent teams to Upper Branch Road in Auburndale, N.S., a small neighborhood outside Bridgewater.

The bungalow was already destroyed in flames when emergency responders came. It took several hours of grind by nearly 50 firefighters to get the fire under control, told Midville and District Fire Department Chief Cory Emino.

Emino said trucks remained on the location for almost 15 hours.

Two people had already exited the home when units came on the scene — a 36-year-old man and a four-year-old boy.

The four victims, a female, and three kids, were later found inside the house.

Kaylea Savory, 33, died in a house fire in Auburndale, N.S., on Saturday, Feb. 19, 2022.

‘Her smile would shine up a room.’

The lady was 33-year-old Kaylea Savory, and two of the kids were her sons, 11-year-old Harley Savory and eight-year-old Hendrix Savory.

“Incredible,” is how Savory’s brother added her up.

“Her giggle and her smile would glow up a room,” James Stewart told CBC News.

Stewart told his sister, his best friend, was at the best point in her life.

He said she had just begun a new career path as a teaching assistant and had goals of becoming a guidance counselor. She had just become an aunt for the first time when Stewart’s first kid was born the previous year, and she was engaged to be married.

Savory’s fiancé is the guy who ran the fire.

Stewart stated he had two kids from prior relationships who were also at home early Saturday. His son is the boy who flew; his daughter was the fourth victim.
