For the second time this week, fire officials are inspecting a blaze where the occupants weren’t home.

London Firefighters were called to a four-plex at 97 Inkerman Street near Adelaide Street and Hamilton Road at around 9:56 p.m. Tuesday.2013-fire-truck-605x250-e1425041272561

“When we arrived, there was smoke coming from the front door,” Platoon Chief Doug Shannon told AM980.

“Occupants that were in the other three units were out, reporting that the person that was in the unit that was on fire was at work.”

Fire crews were able to make their way inside, and quickly extinguish the blaze in the living room of the unit.

Shannon says the building was equipped with working smoke detectors, which is what alerted them to the fire.

No injuries have been reported.

“An inspector was called in and they’ll be back later today to sift through what’s left in the unit to see if they can find the cause,” said Shannon.

Damage is pegged at $40,000.

On Monday night, fire crews extinguished a kitchen fire inside an eighth floor apartment at 710 Wonderland Road, north of Oxford Street.

The tenants were not home when the fire broke out around midnight. No injuries were reported and damage was estimated to be up to $80,000.
