CORNWALL — A small balcony fire at the rear of a home had firefighters working overnight.

The Cornwall Fire Department was called to the 860 block of First Street East a few minutes after midnight this morning (Tuesday).

“The fire was extinguished quickly (and) we took air measurements at the property,” Fire Chief Pierre Voisine told CNW.

Firefighters wrapped up at the scene around 12:45 a.m.

The cause is unknown at this time, Voisine said.
