West end house fire under investigation

An investigation into the cause of a morning house fire in Byron is underway.

Fire crews were called to 503 Boler Road shortly after 6:30 a.m. Tuesday after a neighbour reported smoke coming from the home.

Once on scene crews found fire and smoke within the residence. It is believed that the fire began in the basement, however an investigator is on scene to determine the cause and origin of the fire.

Police say the homeowner was not home at the time of the fire.

The owner of the home, Allison Stacey, gained notoriety earlier this year by plastering her property with signs complaining about a contractor who she says took money but left the job unfinished. She spoke to CTV News in January

“A girl has to do something. I am absolutely out of ideas. I can’t be any more calm than what I am because I’m frantic.,” Stacey said on Jan. 17.

Stacey arrived at the home around 9:30 a.m., telling officials she had been out walking her dog in Springbank Park. She was then transported to London Police Headquarters to give her statement.

The Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office has been contacted and the London Police Foresensics Unit is being asked to help with the investigation.
