Blaze rips through Woodbridge home under renovation
Firefighters made quick work of blaze, but not before roof partially collapsed
A two-alarm blaze ripped through a home that was under renovation in Woodbridge early Thursday morning, causing extensive damage.
Emergency crews were called to the home on Colton Crescent, in the Islington Avenue and Rutherford Road area, shortly before 1:30 a.m.
They found the house engulfed in flames, and the roof partially collapsed. Despite the size of the blaze, firefighters put it out fairly quickly, according to Vaughan Fire & Rescue Service.
