The Gravenhurst Fire Department responded to a fire on a deck at a residence this weekend.

On Sunday, members from stations 1,2 and 3 responded to the fire at Parkers Point Road and engaged in property conservation and salvage operations to ensure the fire did not extend into the residence.

According to the department’s Twitter page, the fire was extinguished within two hours.

The department says it is thankful for the homeowner, who held the fire in check by using a garden hose.
