WELLINGTON NORTH – An invoice from the township is pending following a Monday night burn of an abandoned house trailer.

Wellington North Fire Services was called to a structure fire on Sideroad 25 at around 9:24pm on Jan. 6.

Wellington North Fire Chief Dave Guilbault explained the structure turned out to be an abandoned house trailer.

There were no injuries and the damage is estimated at $500.

Fire stations in Arthur, Mount Forest and Centre Wellington were originally called, but Mount Forest and Centre Wellington were cancelled en route.

Eleven firefighters remained on scene to extinguish the fire.

Guilbault said the fire was deliberately set and as an unauthorized burn, a $5,000 invoice is pending.
