(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A serious situation unfolded on the notorious stretch of Picton Ave this morning.
Our tipline lit up with hot tips about a home being engulfed in flames.
Firefighters with the Thunder Bay Fire Rescue team arrived on scene and called for a “second alarm”. A “second alarm” is whats called when a structural fire is occurring.
About 6 fire trucks responded to the scene including pumper trucks and one ladder truck. You can hear what sounds like explosions erupting from the building.
The cause of the fire is unknown at this point as fire investigators are still in the early stages of their investigation.
Injuries are unknown at this time. Chantal Boucher, who sent in the video to us, can be heard wondering if “Jenn” made it out of the blaze.
“FIRE has Erupted.. Nobody has been injured as far as we know.. Our local thunder bay fire department has once again safely extinguished the blaze that occured tonight in the Picton community.” – Chantal Boucher.
We will provide an update later today once fire officials provide further informtion.
