The Ontario Fire Marshal has been called in to probe the cause of what police are calling a suspicious fire early this morning.
Emergency crews were called just after 3:30 to a house on West Avenue North just south of Cannon Street for reports of a vehicle fire.
The Fire Department says one car was fully engulfed and the flames were infringing on the car beside it and to the front of the house.
Police say the one car is the crime scene adding there were suspicious aspects to the blaze but couldn’t comment further.
Three occupants inside the home managed to get out safely.
Damage of the two vehicles and house is estimated at 20 thousand dollars.
