Orleans electrical fire displaces family

OTTAWA — An overnight electrical fire in the basement of an Orleans home has displaced a family of three.

The fire began around midnight, at a home on Lunenburg Crescent, near Jeanne D’Arc Boulevard South and Orleans Boulevard.

Smoke filled the home’s basement, but the fire was contained to one room. Firefighters had the blaze under control with a half-hour.

Two adults and a child who live in the home had to spend the night elsewhere.

No one was hurt in the fire. Damage has been estimated around $60,000.
