Fire breaks out at student residence in Peterborough’s west end

Fire ripped through the top floor a student residence in Peterborough’s west end on Thursday afternoon.

Crews responded just before 1:30 p.m. to the student complex on Spillsbury Drive.

The complexes in the area are commonly used as student housing for nearby the nearby Fleming College campus.

Roads in the area are closed.

Firefighters managed to contain the fire to a top floor unit. There are concerns that nearby residences may have to be evacuated due to excess smoke.

Property manager Sabrina Hepp confirmed with Global Peterborough that no one was home at the time of the fire.

The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
