“With heavy flames initially on our arrival, the crew were able to make a quick attack, got the flames knocked down. We did have a little extension into the roof and…to the metal roofing; we are having a little extra overhaul to find any hot spots,” explained Acting Captain of the Sarnia Fire Department Derek Raine.

Officials have yet to determine the cause of the blaze.

Preliminary estimates peg damages at up to $600,000.
