Firefighters respond to blaze at historic motel Wednesday.

 

n Wednesday, fire crews were summoned to the Maple Leaf Motel in the 51000 block of Yale Rd.

 

Thankfully, the 71-year-old male resident escaped without injury, however he tried to re-enter the burning home and was prevented in doing so by neighbours until firefighters were on the scene.

 

The fact that firefighters were able to respond as quickly as they did meant this home sustained minimal damage.

 

There were no injuries to firefighters.

 

The cause of the blaze is not known. More details as they emerge later.
