(May 20, 9.25am GEORGIAN BAY) The owners of a cottage on Bone Island, Georgian Bay are being treated for minor injuries after their cottage caught fire on Bone Island last night.

Police report the fire started at the roof level of a wood burning stove, and high winds made it difficult to fight the fire. Georgian Bay Firefighters and South Georgian OPP responded to the blaze at 8:45pm and firefighters stayed there until midnight. They are returning this morning.
