On March 1st, a house fire on Irena Road was reported to the South Dundas Fire and Emergency Services (SDFES).
According to SDFES Chief Chris McDonough, it was “ a major structural fire.”
As for what took place, he said that “at approximately 11:40 a.m., Iroquois and Williamsburg were dispatched to a structure fire on Irena.”
“When they arrived the flames were through the roof of the house. The owner stated he went out that morning to run errands around 10 a.m. and when he returned around 11:30 a.m. there was heavy smoke in the building and he called 911.”
“It’s believed to be that the fire initiated around the wood stove, although the damage was too extensive to confirm. No injuries were reported.”
