An early morning fire in Elliot Lake late last week destroyed a business and multiple vehicles.
Elliot Lake Fire Chief John Thomas says a passerby noticed a fire at the business on Fox Drive around 5:15 Friday morning.
He says the main storage building was destroyed as well as several different kinds of vehicles from ATVs to trailers that were stored at the site.
The Ontario Fire Marshall’s office was called out, but Thomas says they do not believe the fire was suspicious in origin.
He adds the owner of the building was insured, but some of the vehicles may not have been.
Thomas says the damage is estimated at around $450,000.
He adds the cause is still unknown and the investigation is ongoing.
