Furnace catches fire at abandoned home

Firefighters had to break the door down on an abandoned home to put out a furnace fire on Moy Ave.

Fire fighters raced to a home on Moy Ave. Tuesday morning.

They had to break down the door of a vacant home  at 1178 Moy, just north of Giles Blvd.   Neighbours had called 911, reporting that smoke was coming from the house.

The furnace was on fire when Windsor Fire and Rescue crews arrived, but the fire was put out quickly before it had a chance to spread.  Only the furnace was damaged.
