No one injured in fire believed to have started in the attic of a Montague home

No one was injured in a house fire this morning on Robert Clements Drive in Montague. Firefighters arrived shortly after 9 am to find smoke billowing from under the eves of the single family dwelling. Montague Fire Chief Tommy MacLeod said the fire likely started in the attic which is where members of the department were hosing down from the inside by 9:30 am. Firefighters went into the basement and the main floor first and found no indication it started in either of those areas, Mr MacLeod said. Power to the home was shut off by Maritime Electric before fire crews went in. The cause is still unknown and the fire was still burning shortly before 10 am when PEI Fire Marshall Dave Rossiter arrived on scene. Charlotte MacAulay photo
