Ottawa firefighters put out 2 blazes Sunday
Ottawa fire crews responded to two separate blazes on Sunday, one in a downtown apartment and another in a vacant home in Bells Corners.
No one was injured in either fire, both of which occurred Sunday afternoon.
The first fire happened in an apartment in a three-storey building on Lisgar Street near Bank Street. Fire crews were called to the scene at about 2:45 p.m. and contained the fire to one apartment.
Firefighters said the fire started in the living room of the apartment. One resident has been displaced as a result of the fire, which caused an estimated $50,000 in damage.
The second fire happened at a small, vacant home owned by the National Capital Commission on Richmond Road near Seyton Drive.
Fire crews arrived to find the two-storey house engulfed in flames. Damage is estimated at $125,000, fire officials said in a statement.
