HAMILTON | At least 11 houses in the row were destroyed by a violent fire on Monday in Hamilton, in southern Ontario.

Firefighters were called to intervene in the sector of Winona at 2: 40 in the morning for this fire that has taken birth in one of the residences to spread quickly to adjacent houses.

“Intense fire in most of the units,” wrote the fire department of Hamilton on Twitter shortly after the 4-h.

“We always have a fire very anchored with structural collapse, told CP 24 Dave Cunliffe, the chief of the fire department, early Monday morning. We had a fire in many of these buildings.”

The houses were built in rows of eight units in this sector. The fire is first attacked in a block of eight houses, to then cause damage to three others from another set, reported CP24.

A strong wind has played an important role in the rapid spread of the flames, according to the head Cunliffe.

No one was injured during this fire, the cause of which was not known Monday afternoon.
