Windsor Firefighters have finished extinguishing a fire that swept through a multi-unit residential home in the 400 block of Caron Avenue in Downtown Windsor.

While on patrol, Windsor Police noticed smoke coming from 490 Caron shortly after 1:30am and alerted residents. Firefighters arrived on scene to find everyone outside and accounted for but heavy black smoke was pouring out from windows of the house and fire was eating away at the south end of the property.

Firefighters had the blaze put out before 2am. The neighbouring house, 496 Caron, suffered from slight melting of its siding. Residents of the building were being assisted with temporary accommodations.

A Windsor Police officer who assisted with the fire was taken to hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.

There’s no word yet on what caused the fire. Damage is extensive.
