No one was hurt after a fire in a cottage community on Bass Lake near County Rd. 1 – Rideau Ferry Road, in Rideau Lakes.

The township’s fire department says that Rideau Lakes stations 1, 2 and 3 with the assistance of the Smiths Falls Fire Department attended a fully involved cottage fire and put it out. The cottage is a total loss. 

A witness tells Lake 88 it was a three season cottage. The resident of the cottage next door says the home suffered severe heat damage. The siding was completely melted and there is extensive smoke damage. 

That smoke could be seen billowing into the sky for quite a distance.

The investigation into the cause continues.

A damage estimate has not been released.
