On October 29th at around 9 p.m., Gravenhurst firefighters were called to a fire in a four-unit apartment and found a small electrical fire started in one of the units. Firefighters noticed that there was an absence of adequate and up-to-date smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. This led fire inspectors to charge the owner with five counts of “fail to install carbon monoxide alarms where required.” The charges totalled $3,600.00 in fines.
The owner was issued an order to remedy the deficiencies in the building and replace the fire alarms.
