Camper fire under investigation

 

Police and the Ontario Fire Marshals Office are investigating the cause of a July 21 fire that destroyed a camper trailer and damaged an adjacent home.

At 2:47 a.m. a tenant woke up to a fire at the side of his house located at 13027 Froats Road. 

The tenant reported the fire to emergency officials.

South Dundas firefighters from the Williamsburg station attended the scene. 

They quickly extinguished the flames that were burning in a makeshift wooden box. 

“Looking further, it was observed that a camper trailer, adjacent to the house was completely destroyed by fire,” said Chris McDonough, Fire Chief for South Dundas Fire and Emergency Services. 

“Exposures from the fire had melted the siding and facia down to the wood framing,” he added. 

Nearby lawn tractors and equipment were damaged as well.

Crews remained on scene until 4:19 a.m. No injuries were reported.

Fire Chief McDonough estimated damage at approximately $2,500.
