House Destroyed By Fire In Glen Huron

Grass fire near rail line in Springwater

A house fire Sunday night in Glen Huron does not appear to be suspicious in nature, but it did destroy the house on the 8th concession causing $250,000 damage. Forty firefighters fought the blaze. No one was hurt. Neighbouring departments in Essa and Springwater pitched in under the mutual aid agreement.

Earlier Sunday, Springwater firefighters were called to a grass fire along the rail line near Anne Street and Highway 26. It started in a pile of railway ties.
