“Firefighters performed an aggressive interior attack on the fire by two fire crews,” the Guelph Fire Department said in a news release. “Crews were pushed outside of the structure by extreme heat and continued to apply water.”

An aerial device was called in to bring the fire under control.

Officials said the occupants were able to get out safely and no injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation and a damage estimate was not made available.
