2 injured in fire at Crystal Beach home

Two people were taken to hospital following a fire Monday night at a home in the Crystal Beach neighbourhood, fire officials say.

Emergency crews were called to 10 Crystal Beach Dr. shortly after 10 p.m. after a 911 caller reported smoke coming from the house, Ottawa fire officials said in a release.

The home's occupants had already evacuated, officials added, but two of the residents were hospitalized with injuries that have not yet been disclosed.

​The cause of the fire is still under investigation, officials said.

2 fires in 6 hours

About six hours later, fire crews were called to a detached garage fire at 2520 Leitrim Rd. after a passerby noticed smoke.

The passerby was able to wake the home's residents and everyone — including the pets — were able to get out safely, fire officials said.

The fire did not come into contact with the house. As of 4:30 a.m., crews were still on the scene.
