UXBRIDGE: A home in Udora was completely destroyed and three family pets were killed after a fire on Sunday, July 19.
The Georgina fire department was called to a house on Mill Pond Lane at around 3:30 a.m. Fire crews were able to extinguish the blaze at the one and a half storey home about an hour after they arrived. Fire Chief Ron Jenkins said that the scene was too dangerous when fire crews arrived to send firefighters inside.
“When we arrived the house was fully involved,” he said. “The crews responded very effectively.”
Residents of the home escaped unharmed. The fire chief added that this situation proves the importance of having working smoke alarms.
“Everyone had evacuated quickly because they had working smoke alarms,” he said.
The cause of the fire will go down as undetermined because of the excessive damages to the home, Chief Jenkins also told The Standard. No estimate on the damages to the home was available.
