Car fire spreads to Lakefield home

No one was injured after a car fire spread to a house in Lakefield on Wednesday afternoon.

A witness told CHEX News she was walking in the area of William St. when she saw flames coming from the black classic car which was parked on the front lawn of a homewe-sequence-04-00_00_27_06-still003.

She called 911 and said within five minutes the flames spread to the front of the house.

Selwyn Township firefighters arrived and quickly extinguished the blaze. A neighbour retrieved a dog but two cats were missing. No one was home at the time. William St. was closed to traffic.

Later Wednesday it was reported the cats were found safe.

The cause of the fire and a damage estimate have yet to be determined.
