“It was difficult to really confirm which house was on fire because of the amount of smoke blanketing the area.”

Although there isn’t an exact dollar estimate of damage from the fire, Fitzgerald tells Global News the number is well over $100,000.

“The fire is currently under investigation with the Ontario Fire Marshall attending today [Wednesday]. There’s no cause or dollar estimate but damage is well in excess of 100,000.”

Firefighters say residents of the home had already self-evacuated when they arrived.

Investigation continues today by London police and Fire Prevention Investigators to find a cause, origin, and circumstance.
