“Multiple” 911 calls around 12:50 a.m. on Friday reported smoke and flames coming from the end unit of a row house complex on Kirkstone Private in the city’s southwest end, Ottawa Fire Services said.
Firefighters declared a two-alarm fire at the suburban home just after 1 a.m. and had it under control at 1:40 a.m., according to the fire department.
The home’s occupants reportedly evacuated safely before firefighters arrived.
An Ottawa fire investigator is looking into the cause of the blaze.
Crews remain on scene for “overhaul and salvage operations,” according to the fire department.
