Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of an explosion that gutted a house and a barn in Greely Thursday night.
There are still no reports of injuries on the property at 1919 Stagecoach Rd.
Fire Crews responded to a call of three buildings on fire at 1934 Stagecoach Road just before 8:30 Thursday evening, calling for a second alarm not long after arrival. Crews first at the scene say the buildings include a house and barn.
Two of the buildings were completely flattened, only the barn, a metal structure, remained standing.
There is evidence of an explosion at the scene. Firefighters at a nearby station reported hearing three.
There are no reports of injuries at this time and the fire is under control. Ottawa Fire’s Marc Messier says crews searched the building, but they can’t be 100 per cent certain no one was inside.
Multiple callers to the CFRA Newsroom describe hearing a loud boom that shook homes, looking outside to see flames shooting 30-to-40 feet into the sky.
Stagecoach Road was closed between Parkway and Old Prescott for much of the night. It opened shortly before 12:30 a.m. Friday.
