The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL - THE HAMIL­TON SPEC­TA­TOR

An overnight fire caused an es­ti­mated $100,000 dam­age to a Con­ces­sion Street apart­ment.

Hamil­ton fire­fight­ers ar­rived at 618 Con­ces­sion St. about 1:45 a.m. Wed­nes­day to find heavy smoke bil­low­ing out of the back of the two­s­torey build­ing.

The oc­cu­pants of the build­ing got out safely, with one ten­ant suf­fer­ing mi­nor smoke in­hala­tion.

The Red Cross was called in to help the ten­ant in the unit where the fire started find an­other place to stay.

Fire­fight­ers stopped the blaze from spread­ing into sev­eral ad­ja­cent busi­nesses and apart­ments on the block.

The fire’s cause is not yet known.
