“We did sound a second alarm because of the volume of fire when we first arrived,” says Acting District Chief Jeff Paris with Halifax Regional Fire & Emergency.

While there was no one inside of the unit when the fire started, there were occupants at the rear of the home.

Paris says crews helped remove some pets from the building, and confirms no people or animals were hurt in the fire.
