Barbecue could be source of condo fire

A fire believed to have spread from a barbecue caused “extensive damage” to two units at a four-storey condo building in the city’s east end Sunday, Ottawa firefighters said.

Police have estimated damages at one million dollars.

At 2:32 p.m., 45 firefighters in 16 vehicles attended the building at 130 Briar Gate Pvt. near the intersection of Innes and Trim roads.

Firefighters said the fire damaged two units.

The residence was part of a condominium that comprised 7 other condos. It sustained smoke and fire damage as did another unit. The remaining units sustained water damage. There were no injuries.

Ottawa fire prevention officers were on scene Sunday to investigate the cause of the fire.
