Fire causes $550K dam­age at pa­tio fur­ni­ture busi­ness

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Dam­age has been set at $550,000 in a fire Satur­day in a work­shop build­ing at a Mill­grove pa­tio fur­ni­ture busi­ness known for its gi­ant di­nosaur stat­ues out front. Hamil­ton Fire De­part­ment spokesper­son Clau­dio Mostacci said the in­ves­ti­ga­tion has been handed over to the

On­tario Fire Mar­shal’s Of­fice be­cause of the high dam­age cost. Fire­fight­ers were still on the scene Sun­day. The build­ing at Flam­bor­ough Pa­tio Fur­ni­ture that caught fire, and even­tu­ally col­lapsed, housed wood and wood­work­ing ma­chines that were used to make gaze­bos, said Mostacci. Fire crews were able to pro­tect the two struc­tures at the side of the build­ing — a res­i­den­tial home and a com­mer­cial prop­erty. Dam­age to the house was con­fined to the rear of the build­ing, with less dam­age to the com­mer­cial prop­erty, Mostacci said.
