Fire mar­shal probes Bay Street South house fire

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

The of­fice of the On­tario Fire Mar­shal has been dis­patched to in­ves­ti­gate a fire Satur­day night in a mul­ti­rental-unit home at 228 Bay St. S.

Hamil­ton fire­fight­ers en­tered through the front door of the twoand-a-half storey, stately-look­ing cen­tury home just af­ter 10:30 p.m. Satur­day. They punched holes in the roof to ven­ti­late the build­ing and quickly knocked down the fire in one of the seven rental units.

Res­i­dents ex­ited the house and no one was in­jured. Dam­age is es­ti­mated at $10,000.

Hamil­ton Fire Depart­ment spokesper­son Clau­dio Mostacci could not com­ment fur­ther on what was burn­ing or the cause of the fire.

Mostacci said it was a busy night for Hamil­ton fire­fight­ers: 15 min­utes prior to the Bay Street call, crews fought an in­tense fire in a stor­age build­ing near a farm­house at 2574 Kirk Rd. in Glan­brook.

Crews were on site un­til about 2 a.m. Vol­un­teer fire­fight­ers as­sisted as well. Dam­age is es­ti­mated at about $150,000. No­body was in­jured, and the house it­self was not dam­aged.
