Car strikes house in west London, causes fire
Four people were taken to hospital with minor injuries
Emergency crews were kept busy overnight after a car struck a house in the city's west end, causing a fire and sending four people to hospital.
The incident happened just before 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, said Platoon Chief Gary Mosburger.
The home that was hit was 1049 OakCrossing Gate, near Sarnia Road.
"Fire crews contained the fire to the lower and middle part of the home and brought the fire under control," Mosburger said. "The two occupants who were home at the time had self-evacuated."
The occupants of the house and those in the car were taken to hospital with minor injuries.
A structural engineer will have to examine the house before anyone can go back inside it. Damage is pegged at more than $500,000.
