Orillia firefighters extinguished a house fire at a Brant Street home this weekend.
Crews were dispatched to the scene at 5:50 a.m., Saturday, following a call about smoke coming from a home.
Firefighters found two occupants waiting outside the residence upon arrival.
“Both occupants had smoke inhalation and were taken to hospital by paramedics to be assessed,” Deputy Fire Chief Chris Ferry said in a statement to OrilliaMatters. “They were released from hospital with no serious injuries.”
Ferry said the house sustained approximately $600,000 in damage and foul play is not suspected.
“The fire is not suspicious. The fire appears to have started in the bathroom area,” Ferry said.
