Fire has destroyed a Charleswood home
Crews were called out to 38 Matlock Crescent Sunday afternoon, but flames had already fully engulfed the house by the time they arrived.
“We noticed it was in the basement,” said Platoon Safety Officer, Russ Morrow.
“Smoke was coming out through the vents in the attic at our arrival so it was well seeded and very difficult to get to.”
Flames and black smoke were seen coming out of the roof.
No one was home at the time of the fire, but a firefighter was injured and treated at the scene for minor wounds.
It’s unclear what ignited the flames.
