London, Ont., fire crews say no one was seriously injured after a house fire Saturday afternoon.

London Fire Department (LFD) crews were called to a home at 325 Grey St. just after 3 p.m.

The roof was on fire, and a platoon chief with LFD says the fire was difficult to knock down due to the old age of the home and multiple layers of roof shingles.
