Battalion Chief Brian Carmichael says a second alarm was called when crews arrived on scene.

“Six engines, about 25 firefighters, and we did a defensive attack and knocked the fire down. The house was a vacant home, it had been boarded up, but there were reports of squatters in the area.”

When asked if he had any advice for people living near a vacant home, Carmichael says they should be vigilant, and let the city bylaw office know if they see anyone that doesn’t belong.
