Web posted on June 25, 2014

On June 21, 2014 at 9:26 p.m. the Guelph Fire Department responded to a reported fire at the above noted location. Units from the Elizabeth St., Wyndham St., Speedvale Ave, Stone Rd. and Imperial Rd. stations arrived at the scene and found a fully involved detached garage fire. The large volume of heat and fire impinging on the Del Mar home resulted in fire spreading to the roof and attic areas.

The fire was quickly brought under control and subsequently extinguished due to aggressive interior and exterior fire attacks. Extensive overhaul was performed to ensure complete extinguishment.

A neighbouring home, located at 78 Victoria Rd. N, sustained minor damage as a result of the radiant heat from this fire.

There were no injuries to the occupants or firefighting personnel.

The cause of the fire along with an estimate of damage is still under investigation by Fire Prevention.

Thank you to Guelph Police Service, Guelph Wellington EMS, Guelph Hydro, Guelph Public Works and Victim Services for your assistance.
