Saturday – Clearview Fire Chief Colin Shewell says the fire does not appear to be suspicious in nature. Cause has yet to be determined.

Friday – No injuries after a house was destroyed by fire. Clearview Fire crews got the call to a Singhampton home around 1:30 this afternoon, and arrived to the County Road 124 property to find it fully engulfed by flame. Crews got to work preventing it from spreading and were able to contain the blaze to the one, 2-storey log home. Fire crews were still on scene dousing hot spots when we contacted Fire Chief Colin Shewell, but he believes the blaze may have started in the basement. No one was home at the time of the fire.
