Fire breaks out on second floor


All three stations of the South Dundas Fire and Emergency Services were dispatched to a fire at 3439 County Road 31 in the Township of South Dundas at approximately 7 p.m. on July 19.

According to chief Chris McDonough, “North Dundas also responded to the call with a full response from Winchester.”

There were no injuries to report and “dogs and cats were removed from the ground floor,” said McDonough.

The fire, which is thought to have started in one of the second floor bedrooms, was “under control” by 9 p.m. and extinguished by 9:30 p.m.

The cause, said McDonough, is under investigation and the estimated damage is approximately $180,000. Damage to the second floor, he said, was extensive.
