By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON  July 30, 2012   Someone isn’t satisfied with how or why a fire got started that totally gutted a house on Cornerstone Drive last Friday.

Resident in the immediate area had to vacate their homes for up to eight hours while fire fighters worked to bring the blaze under control.

The Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal and the Halton Regional Police Service are continuing their investigation into the cause of a fire that gutted a family residence at 4645 Cornerstone Drive, Burlington in the early morning hours of July 27th, 2012.

When there is not an immediate reason for a major fire – investigators from the Office of the Ontario Fire Marshall are brought in. Here an investigator goes through a premise with a fine tooth comb – they inevitably figure out where and why a fire started.

Access to the street was restricted for approximately eight hours to facilitate the safe entry and excavation of the fire scene. The neighbouring occupants were required to evacuate their homes during the investigation.

The structure is a total loss and requires demolition. Damage estimate is in excess of $500,000.
