A A

Damage has been assessed at $100,000 after a multiple alarm fire in central Hamilton. It began early Monday, just after midnight at a townhome on 53 Cathcart St. between Cannon and Wilson.

The electrical fire started in the basement but ran up the wall space to a second floor attic.

One firefighter was sent to hospital for treatment, and released shortly after.

While the home was vacant, it did have a working smoke alarm that alerted neighbours in the adjoining home.
