A cottage just east of Big Bay on Grey road 1 in Georgian Bluffs has been destroyed by fire.
Wiarton and the Intertownship Fire departments were called just before 7:30 Wednesday night.
The older style cottage on the waterfront was fully engulfed in flames when they arrived on the scene.
Intertownship Fire Chief Carl Linthorne says the owner was heating up some frozen pipes using a blow torch and accidentally touched off the blaze.
No one was injured and a damage estimate has not been given.
