Five people, including three children, have been displaced from their home, Chatham-Kent Fire and Emergency Services spokesperson Whitney Burk said.

The structure at 20408 Base Rd. is completely destroyed, she said.

The cause of the blaze was accidental, said fire department officials.

Firefighters from stations in Ridgetown, Harwich North and Blenheim responded to the fire at approximately 8:30 p.m.

Fire officials remind homeowners to have working smoke alarms on every level of a home. Working carbon monoxide alarms should also be outside all sleeping areas if the home has fuel-burning appliances, a fireplace or an attached garage.
