AM800-NEWS-Laforet-St-house-fire-February-20-2021

Thanks for a working smoke alarm, no serious injuries are being reported following a house fire on the city's west side.

Windsor Fire and Rescue responded to house fire in the 500-block of Laforet St. just after 3am Saturday.

The fire spread to a neighbouring home on Baby St. — it took crews over an hour to get both fires under control.

Fire officials are crediting a working smoke alarm for saving those who were home at the time.

One person was treated for minor smoke inhalation.

Cause is listed as undetermined with damage estimated at $150,000 — the neighbouring property on Baby St. sustained $150,000 in damage as well.
