“It was the fastest moving fire I ever saw” says Petrolia’s Fire chief of Saturday blaze.

No one was injured after a mid-day fire destroyed a home west of Petrolia.

Fire Chief Lawrence Swift says a small fire underneath a cover porch consumed the front of the home in three minutes as a south wind pushed the flames up the vinyl siding and under the roof.

Firefighters were about to get family photographs and home computers out of the building relatively unharmed.
