The Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of a massive blaze late Wednesday night that tore through a home in Camlachie, Ont., Lambton OPP said.

Emergency crews were called to the scene in the 3000 block of Victoria Street around 11:45 p.m. after receiving a report of a residential house fire, police said.
