A fire in the 1300 block of Victoria Avenue in Downtown Windsor has sent a woman to Hotel Dieu Hospital.

Firefighters were called around 2am for reports of fire and smoke coming from a house across from Victoria Public School. Arriving crews discovered heavy flames and smoke emanating from the house’s living room window. The blaze was quickly put out and firefighters determined that the fire had not spread.

Damage to the living room and front of the house is extensive.

EMS crews treated one female patient for smoke inhalation and minor burns and transported her to Hotel Dieu.

An investigator could not determine how the fire started but damage is pegged at $150,000.
