It turned out to be a rather busy Monday evening for firefighters in Brighton.
Crews were called out to a house fire on Stewart Road, just after 5:30 and Chief Lloyd Hutchison tells Quinte News, the flames had already spread by the time firefighters arrived, but they worked quickly to limit the damage.
Hutchinson says the large family that lives in the home will have to find other accommodations, for the time being and puts the early damage estimates at about $30,000.
He says while the cause isn’t considered suspicious, investigators will be back on scene Tuesday to look for what sparked the flames.
Then later in the evening a pile at the dump on County Road 26 caught fire and the flames headed towards an excavator.
Hutchinson says firefighters were able to knock the flames down quickly and were just putting out some hot spots, around 9:30 p.m.
