No one was injured in a fire which destroyed a home on Rokeby Line.

At 1:15 this morning, Petrolia/North Enniskillen firefighters were called to the one storey home between Gypsy Flats Road and Black Ash Road. Oil Springs firefighters also were called to the scene to shuttle water from a hydrant to the scene of the fire.

One person who lived in the home were awakened by the smoke detector and they and their dogs fled.

Fire Chief Jay Arns says the fire started in the garage but he’s not sure yet what ignited it.

Arns says there is significant damage to the home – the roof collapsed.

Crews are on the scene this morning, putting out hotspots.
