A neighbour told Global News there was no one living inside the home, but Samycia could not confirm if anyone was inside at the time of the fire.

“We only had about half of the structure searched before we had to pull the crews out due to the intensity of the fire,” Samycia said.

Fire investigators were on scene Thursday evening working to determine a cause.
