A Sixth Line home was severely damaged in an early evening fire Tuesday. Kevin Moore, owner of the home, said one of his employees, Craig Stone, who was staying in the home was on the second floor when he noticed flames outside of a window. Moore, who lives in another home on the property, said Stone rushed out of the house looking for a garden hose to extinguish the blaze, but couldn't find one so ran to a neighbour's house to call 911. The fire department received the call at approximately 7:50 p.m. and when firefighters arrived the fire had advanced and quickly spread into the roof of the home. One end of the home was engulfed in flames. Tankers from both the Acton and Georgetown fire stations were used to shuttle water to the property. Approximately 30 firefighters worked throughout the evening and into the early morning Wednesday until the fire was finally extinguished. "Firefighting operations were hampered due to the construction of the home with many voids and open spaces in the wall and roof portions of the home," said the department spokesperson. "Crews had to remove many sections in the ceiling to remove insulation and access hotspots." No one was injured in the blaze but Stone lost some of his belongings and Moore said some items including antique furniture suffered smoke and water damage. The fire department spokesperson said the fire started on the main level of the home, and damage is estimated at $150,000. He said the suspected cause of the blaze is a design deficiency in a wood burning stove or how it was installed.

Approximately 30 Halton Hills firefighters worked throughout the evening and into the early morning Wednesday to extinguish this house fire on Sixth Line. Damage is estimated at $150,000 and the suspected cause of the blaze is a design deficiency in a wood-burning stove or how it was installed.
