An investigator from the Fire Marshal’s Office has been called in to determine the cause of an apartment fire in Hamilton.
The flames caused substantial damage to an upper-floor unit — within a three-storey building on Prospect Street South. Neighbouring units sustained minor smoke and water damage.
Firefighters were called to the scene at about 9 o’clock this morning.
The tenant of the unit where the blaze started was not at home at the time. All other building residents were evacuated safely.
