Dryer lint gets the blame for a fire that damaged an Angus home.
Essa Fire crews were called to Truax Crescent Wednesday evening with reports of a fire there. Fire crews knocked down the flame, while there were no injuries reported.
Deputy Fire Chief Doug Burgin tells Barrie 360 lint in a dryer vent exhaust ignited the fire, causing about $75,000 in damage.
Meanwhile, an electrical issue may be the cause of a fire in Essa Township Sunday evening; the County Road 21 blaze caused an estimated $150,000 in damage to the structure.
