Nobody Home At Time Of Blaze

Nobody was hurt during a fire in Midland, as nobody was home. Midland fire crews got the call to a Wellington Street home around noon yesterday, after someone spotted smoke coming from the eaves of the home. Firefighters got in, moved to the basement where the fire is believed to have started, and got it knocked down in short order. The cause hasn’t been determined, while officials peg the damage at about $150,000.
