CORNWALL, Ontario – One family was displaced after a fire at their apartment on Walton Street the morning of Wednesday, April 5 at around 7:30 a.m.

While the cause of the fire is still under investigation, Cornwall Fire Chief Pierre Voisine told Seaway News that it would likely be ruled an accident.

He explained that the hard work of the firefighters on the scene prevented the fire from doing a lot more damage.

“The firefighters did a really good job on that one,” he said. “They contained the fire to one apartment in a four apartment complex. It could have been much worse.

The Chief said that no injuries resulted from that fire.
