A hundred thousand dollars is the damage total from a fire in a Hamilton Mountain home that started in the basement.
Hamilton fire fighters were called out to a townhouse at 1300 Upper Ottawa Street North at about 7 o’clock Thursday night.
The department’s spokesman Claudio Mostacci says it was a well involved fire with heavy smoke.
The suspected cause is a can of flammable material left next to the furnace.
No one was injured.
