Coldwater home completely destroyed by fire

No one was home when fire ravaged a house and attached garage on on Wednesday, Sept. 15, said Severn Fire Chief Tim Cranney. 

While the building was completely destroyed, there were no injuries.

Around 9:30 a.m., responded with three stations to Leisure Court for a reported garage fire, Cranney said, adding it was called in by a passerby. 

“Upon arrival, crews found a heavy fire involvement in the garage attached to the structure,” he said. 

Severn called for mutual aid; firefighters from Oro-Medonte and Tay arrived to help extinguish the blaze.

The home was destroyed. It is not inhabitable, Cranney said. He estimated the loss at approximately $350,000.

 The source of the fire is under investigation.
