The Huntsville/Lake of Bays Fire Department responded to a reported structure fire on Britannia Road in Huntsville on Saturday morning.

Upon arrival, crews encountered heavy fire in the attic area of the two storey 100-year-old farmhouse.

The Fire Dept says that the occupants noticed smoke inside the home and noticed flames in the second storey. They safely evacuated along with their pets.

One man was assessed by Muskoka Paramedic Services for minor smoke inhalation and was released.

The home is a total loss with damage estimated at $350,000. The cause and circumstances of the fire are currently under investigation.

Sources close to the family say they’ve lost it all, with no insurance on the property.  A Go Fund Me campaign has been set up to help the family.
