Ottawa Fire battles two-alarm blaze in converted house on Gladstone Avenue

Ottawa Fire crews battled a two-alarm fire in a large three-and-a-half storey converted house on Gladstone Ave. early Sunday morning. 

They say the blaze broke out just after midnight, in the Bayswater-Kichissippi area. 

By 2:00 a.m., fire crews had the main body of the fire extinguished, and were opening up the roof and top floor ceilings to ensure the fire hadn't spread.

All the home's occupants were evacuated, and no injuries were reported. 

There's no word yet on the cause of the blaze or the cost of the damages. 

An Ottawa Fire Investigator was dispatched to the scene to investigate the cause.
