On the evening of Saturday, February 18, a rural residence in Milton was severely damaged by fire. Firefighters arrived at 8337 Guelph Line, south of Campbellville, to find a detached wooden bungalow fully engulfed, with flames shooting out of the roof. The fire broke out shortly after 7 p.m.
Fortunately, all occupants of the home made it out safely, and several dogs outside at the rear of the house were also rescued. No injuries were reported. The Milton fire department responded to the call, bringing seven trucks and 30 firefighters, with three water tankers shuttling water to the scene of the fire.
Guelph Line, between Limestone Road and Conservation Road, was closed by Halton police due to firefighting operations and the number of emergency vehicles on the scene. Milton deputy fire chief Matt Townsend stated,
"Crews arrived to a fully involved house fire, immediately going to a defensive mode with flames several feet high already visible from the roof area and all occupants out."
