Clearview Fire Chief Roryee Payment says nobody was home when fire struck a residence in Sunnidale Corners.
Pictures on Twitter showed smoke billowing from the two-storey residence.
Payment said the fire was electrical in nature and caused $250,000 damage.
The blaze started early Saturday and forced the closure of Highway 26 at County Road 10 to 3/4 Sideroad Sunnidale east of Stayner.
The road has since reopened.
