“Upon arrival, crews found a fully involved structure fire. Crews managed to keep it from spreading to the neighbouring cottages, garage and boathouse,” Lambe told Global News Peterborough.

Twenty firefighters initially responded and remain at the scene, the fire chief added.

Lambe said the cause of the fire remains under investigation, and the Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal has been notified due to the value of the residence.
