Stubborn Roof Fire on George Street

Firefighters responded to a roof fire at an office building at 108-112 George St. on Saturday afternoon.

The stubborn blaze at the corner of George and Chatham streets was located between sheets of aluminum roof tiles and the underlying plywood atop the building that houses Children's Aid Society offices, said platoon chief Scott Foster.

Roofers had been working at the site prior to the 1:15 p.m. call. The official cause of the fire is under investigation. No one was injured.

Foster said the unit at 108 George St. sustained smoke and water damage. The neighbouring unit at 112 George St. sustained smoke damage.
