Grey Highlands | by Matt Hermiz  

Home on Grey Road 12 completely razed; not considered suspicious

A residence north of Markdale was completely destroyed by fire yesterday.

Grey Highlands fire chief Marty Wellwood tells Bayshore Broadcasting news 10 trucks from both municipal stations were dispatched to a home on Grey Road 12 -- about 10 km north of Markdale -- around 4 yesterday afternoon.

A passerby saw flames coming from the house's garage and called it in.

Wellwood says firefighters remained on scene for more than 10 hours, until 2:30 this morning.

The fire was never completely contained. The house was a total loss.

Wellwood tabs the damage estimate at $200,000.

He says nobody was home at the time of the fire.

The cause is still under investigation but it is not suspicious in nature.
