A house ravaged by fire Saturday morning was demolished over the weekend.

The home at 394 Home Street was destroyed after a fire broke out at about 5 a.m.

A 76-year-old man living in the home was taken to hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation, but was reported to be in good condition.

Officials don’t yet know the cause of the blaze, but say damage is estimated at $200,000.

Neighbouring homes suffered water damage and firefighters had to work in shifts due to the extreme cold.
