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.
