Two homes were impacted with one fully involved when fire crews arrived on site on Russell Street East in Lindsay at approximately 2am. Jones says the second home had approximately $50,000 in damages.

Two people in the basement managed to escape the fire uninjured due to working smoke alarms. Chief Jones says this is a reminder to residents to ensure they have working alarms and to check them regularly.
