“This was a fire in the kitchen area of a three level home situated at the top of a long steep driveway,” said the Assistant Superintendent.

“The fire appeared to start in the pantry of the kitchen area.

“Firefighters entered the smoke-filled home to find flames in the kitchen area and worked to bring the fire under control.

“The fire had begun to burn into the ceiling space between the floors, and firefighters accessed this space to extinguish the fire spread and prevent further damage to the home.”

Fortunately no one was inside the residence at the time and there have been no reported injuries.

The situation was resolved and the road opened in time for buses and residents to collect students at the end of the school day.
