An RV parked adjacent to the property caught fire and spread to the garage of the home, explained Russ Jenkins, deputy fire chief with the Township of Langley.

Firefighters could be seen on the roof at the rear of the home with the RV parked nearby surrounded by trees.

The extent of the damage and the cause of the fire are not known at this time as crews remain on site and investigate, Jenkins said.

There are no injuries reported at this time.

July has been a busy month for Township and City firefighters.

“We seem to have a lot more balcony-related fires,” Jenkins said.

He estimates about four out of five “big fires” crews responded to last month started on residential balconies.

It is likely a product of families gathering together more often as COVID-19 has limited activities, Jenkins predicts.
