Here is the excerpt from the Orangeville Banner’s Richard Vivian.
‘Accidental’ fire causes $125K in damages. Hot ashes from a wood stove set off an “accidental” residential fire near Shelburne this week, said Fire Chief Steven Horsley. Firefighters were called to a home on Dufferin Road 11, south of 25 Sideroad, at about 12:45 p.m. Monday (Jan. 11). “It started around the porch,” Horsley said of the fire. “It’s a total wood house, so it doesn’t take long to get going.” No one was injured in blaze. The only person inside the house when fire broke out was a female homeowner, Horsley said, explaining she called 911 and was waiting safely in the driveway when firefighters arrived. Damage is estimated at about $125,000, he said, noting the family has insurance.
“It (fire) came up the back of the house, up through the roof. … There are holes in the floor where it got down in some flooring,” Horsley said in describing damage to the house. “It was sort of in the basement, main floor, right up into the second floor and into the roof.” Firefighters remained on scene for about eight hours. A tanker truck and crew from Orangeville were called in to assist.
Asked if he wanted to offer any words of caution for people as a result of the fire, Horsley said, “If they do have wood stoves, these things (ashes) should be contained in metal buckets — taken out in a metal pail and left somewhere away from the house, still in that metal bucket until they cool down. Maybe leave them for a day or so.”

Electro-Fi Recording Artists FATHEAD will be launching their brand new disc “Where’s The Blues Taking Me”

no comments

I was asked by the guys from FATHEAD if they could use one of my images for the cover of their up coming release of the new CD “Where’s The Blues Taking Me”. Well here it is! Thanks again guys. More information is below or on FATHEAD’S website or Hugh’s Room’s site. And I will see you on Feb 7, at Hugh’s Room.

Electro-Fi Recording Artists FATHEAD will be launching their brand new disc “Where’s The Blues Taking Me” at Hugh’s Room in Toronto on Sunday Feb. 7, 8:30pm.

The album features 14 brand new original songs plus a bonus track, a knockout version of Jackie Wilson’s big hit “Lonely Teardrops. This is one show you won’t want to miss!!! Advance ticket are $15/door $17. Reserve now! www.hughsroom.com

The album was produced by Juno Winner/musician Lance Anderson, engineered by Jeremy Darby (Canterbury Sound), and mixed by veteran engineer Nick Blagona. The latter two are names you probably wouldn’t know, but acts such as Mick Jagger, Squeeze, Gerry Rafferty (remember Baker Street?), The BeeGees, Deep Purple, Tony Bennett, plus many, many more knew them well and used them as engineers. Their involvement here has resulted in a fantastic sounding disc that has captured FATHEAD at their very best.

This 2x Juno Award winning band has played the top blues rooms, concert halls and music festivals from coast to coast. In 2010 FATHEAD will be touring extensively in support of “Where’s The Blues Taking Me”. Look for them in a town near you.

I was browsing the Ontario Provincial Police website, and came across an interesting link. Bell Canada Enterprises has joined with Amber Alert to send text messages and or emails to your PDA or cell phone. I was unaware of this great idea, but as of today I have signed up to receive these emails. I hope anybody reading this will also sign up, who knows someday you might be saving a child’s life or someone saving your child.


An AMBER Alert is a warning system to quickly notify the public of abducted children who are in immediate danger. This is done through announcements on radio and TV, as well as through electronic highway signs and point of purchase displays at participating retailers.

Bell Canada is a proud community partner with the AMBER Alert Program and Ontario law enforcement agencies in helping to notify the public of an AMBER Alert in Ontario.

To report an abduction or other crimes, please call 911 or your local emergency number.

Well tonight was the night that all the Fire Fighters got back together to compare, brag and rib each other on their “staches”.
Last month I mentioned that some of the members of the Shelburne District Fire Department were getting involved in a fundraiser for Prostrate Cancer. See this blog article.

The total amount raised was $3340.00. With FF Oluf Jensen bringing in the most with $815.00! There were a total of 22 FF involved in the fundraiser. FF Kelly Elderfield is pointing at Capt Dave Hardick, who in her opinion won the “hottest stash contest”
The monies raised are being donated to researching Prostrate Cancer in Canada.
