MIRIAM KING Innisfil Examiner Fire caused major damage to a bungalow in a quiet Alcona residential neighbourhood Sunday afternoon. There were no injuries. Both homeowners were inside the one-storey 1,500 square-foot home on Blackwoods Drive when fire broke out around 4 p.m. Henry Kooistra was watching the Blue Jays game and the Masters golf tournament on television while his wife Lauretta was resting when he saw smoke outside. Initially, he thought a neighbour was burning debris. "Then I looked and it was right outside," he told QMI Agency. He roused his wife and they were able to flee the home. Lauretta Kooistra managed to grab her purse and cell phone as she fled the house while Henry ran outside still wearing his slippers. They moved their vehicles to safety before emergency crews arrived to battle the blaze. South Simcoe police and Innisfil firefighters were on scene within minutes to find smoke pouring from hot spots on the roof. They aggressively attacked the blaze but within minutes, flames erupted from the home's east side eaves.
