Firefighters had difficulty gaining access to a structure fire that was reported through a 911 call at 8:45 p.m. February 24.
The structure was located in a field about 400 feet south of the 401, in the vicinity of the extension of Muttonville Road. Firefighters from the Morrisburg station responded to the scene.
“Firefighters had to access the fire from the 401 with hose lines and equipment which made it difficult with the depth of snow to the structure,” reported Chris McDonough, fire chief for South Dundas Fire and Emergency Services. Firefighters from the Iroquois station were called in for additional manpower and tanker shuttle.
The cause of the fire has not been determined, but it was deemed suspicious, according to McDonough. Damage is estimated at $10,000.
