THUNDER BAY -- A structural fire caused heavy damage on Saturday to a Stapleton Street residence.

Thunder Bay Fire Rescue responded to the blaze at approximately 10:35 p.m. and found heavy smoke emitting from the building.

Crews determined the fire was concentrated near a window at the rear of the home. Firefighters breached the window and knocked the fire down. They then fully extinguished it, as conditions improved inside the home.

A search determined the building was vacant at the time of the fire.

Damage is heavy, with the interior charred throughout.

Thunder Bay Fire Rescue, in a release issued on Sunday morning, said five pumpers and a ladder truck attended the two-alarm incident.

No one was injured.
