It was just after 4AM this morning that emergency services were called to a home on Bigford Rd in the Municipality of Brighton for a structure fire.

When Brighton and Quinte West firefighters arrived on scene, 20 foot flames could be seen from behind the residence from two propane tanks. The attached garage was fully engulfed with fire spreading into the home.

It is believed that the fire started in the attached garage and made its way through the home in the attic and ceiling.

It is reported that the occupants were able to escape the residence without injury. Hastings-Quinte Paramedics were on scene for standby, but were cleared by fire a short time ago.

Crews remain on scene searching for hotspots, and completing overhaul. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
