Gravenhurst firefighters were called to a house fire early Monday after several reports from neighbours in the area.

Crews from stations 1, 2, and 3 responded to a structure fire at 1312 Barkway Road in Gravenhurst. First arriving crews found the home fully involved.  Due to the extent of the fire, additional water tankers were requested from the Bracebridge Fire Department.

The cause is not considered to be suspicious, however further investigation has been initiated.

No injuries were reported and the single occupant was helped out of the home by a neighbour.

Todd Clapp, Deputy Chief said “Early detection was critical in the outcome of this incident.  Residents were very helpful in making the homeowner aware of the situation and helped him exit the home with no injuries."
