Pot on stove sparks fire at Hamilton apartment
A pot left on the stove sparked a fire at a Hamilton apartment building Thursday.
Firefighters were called to a unit on the fourth floor of 95 Wentworth St. S. just before 1 p.m.
“When they first got there, there was heavy smoke,” said fire department spokesperson Claudio Mostacci.
He said crews were able to extinguish the fire quickly and no one was injured.
The fire caused about $10,000 in damage, he added. The tenants were not immediately able to return to their apartment, but no other residents were affected, Mostacci said.
