Damage is pegged at $285,000 after a house fire in Tilbury.

Chatham-Kent fire crews were called to the home at 42 Massey Dr. early Thursday morning.

The occupant was awake and noticed a fire outside. 

When crews arrived, they found the exterior of the home, next to the detached garage, fully involved.

High winds spread the fire into the attic area and additional crews had to be brought in from Merlin and Wheatley.

At one point, an aerial truck was used to knock down the fire and prevent it from spreading to neighbourhing homes.

No one was hurt and the cause is listed as accidental.
