A fire resulted in significant water and smoke damage at the Mark and Tammy Smith residence on Church Street in Ontario on Dec. 29.
Starting in a detached garage, the blaze spread to the house after the siding had ignited. The cause remains unknown, according to officials. No one was injured, and the Smiths were able to retrieve some of their belongings before the fire spread to the house.
Ontario firefighters were on scene for about three hours, and the Wilton Fire Department supplied its imaging camera.
A flareup occurred at the house on Dec. 31, leading to further smoke and water damage.
Tammy Smith operated her daycare business out of the house, which is likely a loss.
