One person was taken to hospital for observation

No reports of any serious injuries following a fire on Country Lane Monday night.

Firefighters were called to the home between Esther Dr. and Heritage Ct. around 8:40 Monday evening, arriving to find smoke billowing out of the two-storey home.

The call was immediately upgraded from a one- to a two-alarm when fire crews arrived, followed by an aggressive attack on the blaze coming from the home. The most apparent damage appeared in the house’s garage. Barrie Police assisted by closing area roadways.

Assistant Deputy Fire Chief Ed Davis told Barrie 360 over the phone Monday evening that investigators are to be called in to look for a cause of the fire. He added that Barrie Fire’s A Platoon did a great job of containing this fire to a single structure, not allowing it to spread.

Barrie Fire remained on scene well into Monday night.
