A two-storey century home on Fourth Line south of  West Lower Base Line  in the rural Omagh area of Milton, was engulfed by fire early this morning. The first fire crew on scene rescued two people from a second-storey balcony, Halton EMS  transported them  to Milton District Hospital for observation.

The fire which erupted shortly before 4am, caused significant damage to the home, gutting sections of it and spreading up through the roof.

Eight trucks and more than 30 firefighters battled the stubborn blaze, that took more than a hour to bring under control.

Fire Chief Brian Ellsworth said it was to early to estimate a damage dollar figure  or the cause of the fire, but  that  the home sustained significant damage.

There were no reports of injuries to firefighters battling the blaze and  Fourth Line was closed in the area of the fire  as water tankers shuttled water to the scene.

Firefighters are expected to remain on the scene for several more hours extinguishing flare-ups and investigating the cause.
