This house fire occurred today around 1pm in the Stoney Creek area of Ontario, Canada. The home was under construction when workers noticed a small fire. In looking at the video it appears as though the “small fire” was much bigger when firefighters arrived!
The fire went to three alarms. The Hamilton Fire Department responded to the fire.
The video shows the fire before firefighters got to it. You might want to mute it…on second thought, it is kind of amusing to hear what the children have to say during the fire.
