House Fire and Suspected Arson

SIX NATIONS – On Thursday evening, four Six Nations firefighters were dispatched to a residential house fire at 77 Seneca Road.

Help arrived at the scene within ten minutes. The first arriving crews reported the building had an obvious roof collapse and was engulfed in flames, but appeared to be deserted.

A primary search of the area using thermal-imaging cameras was conducted and multiple searches of the residence revealed zero casualties.

Cause of the fire is suspected to be arson, but severity of the damage leaves the origin undetermined. Structural damage is estimated to be an approximate $150,000.

The Six Nations firefighters were able to combat the fire and remained on scene until early Friday morning to ensure all hot spots had been extinguished.
