Equipment fire at Lake House Cabinetry, site of old Lee Valley Marine
Posted March 10, 5pm: Nobody was hurt in an equipment fire at the Lake House Cabinetry in Port Carling today. The Muskoka Lakes Fire Department responded over an hour ago to the fire that may have started in a dust collector out back of the shop building. A Lake House Cabinetry spokesperson expressed thanks for the quick thinking of employees who acted swiftly upon smelling smoke, and to the firefighters for their quick response. Lake House Cabinetry is located on the site of the old Lee Valley Marine on Lee Valley Drive. The building was completely renovated a few years ago and another 3,000 feet added to the space. So far, there appears to be no damage to the building itself, but the extent of damage has yet to be fully determined.
Muskoka Lakes Fire Chief Richard Hayes described it as a minor fire in the dust collection system that the fire department had out in short order.
