A house fire in Petawawa today saw Fire Crews respond in defensive mode, as Town Deputy Fire Chief Craig Proulx says the floor of the structure was too weak to endeavour to save the residence.
The incident was reported around 11AM.
Upper Ottawa Valley OPP say they were part of the response team, and are treating the fire as suspicious at this time.
The Ontario Fire Marshall has been notified and will be attending the scene to investigate.
The Crime Unit of the Upper Ottawa Valley OPP is also investigating with the assistance of OPP’s Forensic Identification Services (FIS).
Police say an adult woman, who was the lone occupant of the home at the time, did not sustain any injuries as a result of the fire.
