The cause of a house fire near Carlisle is not considered suspicious.
The flames broke out at about 3 o’clock on Thursday morning at a home on Concession 8 East and the owner and his 10 and 12 year old sons were able to escape without injury.
Damage is estimated at 450 thousand dollars.
The location presented firefighters with a challenge since trucks needed to haul water from Carlisle. While crews were battling the blaze, other trucks kept making a circuit to keep water on the fire.
