Hamilton fire officials believe a multiple alarm blaze at a Mountain residential complex likely started in a kitchen.

Crews arrived at a complex at 525 Stone Church Rd. after 8:30 a.m. on Friday and encountered heavy smoke coming from a first-floor unit of a two-storey townhome.

“The fire was contained to the involved unit, which sustained significant fire and smoke damage,” fire chief Dave Cunliffe said in a release.
