Fire fells vacant Seibert Rd. house


A vacant house at 10873 Seibert Road was completely destroyed by fire July 21.

The call came in at 11:30 a.m. Firefighters from the Iroquois station attended the scene.

“Upon arrival, the building was fully consumed and the structure was down,” said Chris McDonough, fire chief for South Dundas Fire and Emergency Services.

“The amount of garbage and combustible debris that people have been disposing at this location made it very difficult for fire crews to access and extinguish the fire,” he explained.

An excavator was called in to remove excess debris to allow firefighters to ensure that the fire was completely out.

Crews cleared the scene around 3 a.m. and no injuries were reported.
