BRIDGETOWN, N.S. —

A blaze that broke out in an unoccupied Bridgetown bungalow is under investigation.

“When we arrived on scene the backend was fully involved,” said Bridgetown’s fire chief, Randy Sheridan.

“It was through the roof.”

The fire department was paged to the property on Jeffery Street around 6:30 p.m. June 2, Sheridan said.

Departments from Lawrencetown and Annapolis Royal responded as part of automatic aid protocol in place for structure fires, and firefighters from Middleton offered aid as well.

The house is still standing, but it was extensively damaged as a result of the fire.

“The front side didn’t take hardly any damage, but the backend took substantial damage,” said Sheridan, who noted that firefighters remained on the scene until about 10 p.m.

The cause of the fire was undetermined as of 10:30 a.m. the following morning.

We’re still just early into the investigation,” said Sheridan, when asked if the cause was believed to be suspicious in nature.

The fire chief said RCMP and officials from the Office of the Fire Marshal are involved in the ongoing investigation.
