Capt. Bill Papaconstantinou said the fire began in the basement and spread to the roof and the walls before firefighters were able to knock it down. Smoke also went into the home next door.

A total of five people were evacuated from the neighbouring house and six from the house with the fire.

The neighbours will be allowed back into their homes Sunday, while the other six will be housed by emergency management, Papaconstantinou said.
