A home near Port Carling is still standing thanks to some local firefighters.
Muskoka Lakes Fire Department was called to Hewlitt Road this morning after a fire broke out in a shed next to the home. The homeowner called 9-1-1 after someone walking by spotted the shed fire. When crews arrived the shed was engulfed, but firefighters were able to put out the blaze before it spread to the home.
Officials say the fire was started by an electric heater.
