House engulfed in flames near Tenth Line and Wall Road

The ice storm and burnt-through hydro lines made conditions brutal last night for Ottawa Fire crews as they tackled a house fire in the east end.

They say they received a call just before 11:30 p.m. that a house was engulfed in flames close to the intersection of Tenth Line and Wall Rd. 

No injuries were reported, and there's no word yet on estimated cost of the damages.

A fire investigator is on the way to the scene. 


More to come.
