THUNDER BAY - A Windsor Street residence suffered heavy damage after a fire broke out early Saturday morning.

Thunder Bay Fire Rescue said they arrived at the home, in the 200 block of Windsor Street, at about 4 a.m. to find heavy flame and smoke conditions pouring from the residence.

Crews employed a transitional fire attack to knocked down the flames on the second floor of the structure, then followed with an aggressive interior attack and search to ensure no occupants were inside and to prevent the fire from damaging the rest of the home. 

The unit was unoccupied by the time fire crews arrived and adjacent units were searched and cleared.

Firefighter efforts were successful in keeping the fire contained to the one unit.

Investigators remained on scene attempting to determine the fire's cause.

Six pumpers, one aerial ladder and one command vehicle were used.
