Saskatchewan artists are stepping up to help musician Gillian Snider and her roommates recover from a house fire last month. An old type of electric wiring combusted on the third floor of Snider’s home on the evening of Jan. 29. Snider, her partner, three roommates, three dogs, five cats and pet tarantula all survived the fire. Snider said she is still waiting to finalize costs with insurance, but the Avenue G North home will likely have to be gutted. However, all of the instruments were saved.
