No in­juries were re­ported in a re­cent house fire on the 7th Con­ces­sion near Glen Ne­vis.

South Glen­garry act­ing fire chief Dave Robert­son told that the blaze broke out around 2 p.m. on Sept. 4.

“No one was home at the time. It was fully en­gulfed upon our ar­rival, and it was a to­tal loss,” he said.

Mem­bers from four of the town­ship’s five fire halls – Lan­cas­ter, Mart­in­town, North Lan­cas­ter and Wil­liamstown – put out the fire within about an hour-and-a-half of ar­riv­ing at the prop­erty, and re­mained on-site un­til early the fol­low­ing morn­ing.

“We in­ves­ti­gated (the scene) im­me­di­ately af­ter the fire was ex­tin­guished, but due to the amount of loss, we’re un­able to de­ter­mine the cause at this time,” added act­ing chief Robert­son, who said the home was ap­prox­i­mately 25 years old.
