4 displaced, $100K in damages after fire at south-end home: Ottawa Fire Services

A fire in a south-end home on Sunday night displaced four people and caused $100,000 in damages, Ottawa’s fire department says.

First responders got “multiple” 911 calls reporting smoke from a two-storey house on Deer View Avenue in Blossom Park shortly after 6 p.m., a news release from Ottawa Fire Services said.

Firefighters got the flames under control by 6:53 p.m., the release said.

A teenaged girl was treated by paramedics for a minor injury she sustained while escaping the home and was taking to hospital in stable condition, a spokesperson for the Ottawa Paramedic Service confirmed later Monday.

Fire crews remained on scene later Sunday evening but were no longer there Monday morning, an Ottawa Fire spokesperson said.

A fire investigator is looking into the cause of the blaze.
