A fire that displaced two people on Edmund Street last night appears to have been caused by unattended cooking, Greater Sudbury Fire Services said today.
Platoon chief George Lalonde told Sudbury.com that the blaze broke out in the kitchen of an upstairs apartment. Five fire trucks responded to the fire.
Damage in the range of $50,000-$100,000 is estimated as a result of the fire.
No injuries have been reported.
According to the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management, an average of 1,281 fires per year is caused by cooking, higher than any other ignition source causing structure loss fires.
