Fire destroys home on Pineview Avenue

A home on Pineview Avenue was badly damaged on Friday by fire in the early afternoon.

The blaze was so intense that 15 firefighters from three stations were needed to respond and put it out.

When fire crews arrived around 12:50 p.m., they found the single-story home being engulfed with flames.

A neighbour across the street from the home located at the 700-block of Pineview saw the fire in progress and called 911.

Fortunately, the people inside the home were able to get out safely.

Damages were estimated at $200,000.

The Red Cross was also present to help the family.

A vehicle in the driveway and a neighbour's siding was also damaged from the fire's intense heat.

Police said the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
