Fire fighters are on the scene of a fire at the Briarhurst Manor on Manitou Ave. Our crews at the scene say light smoke could be seen coming from the rear of the building. It also appeared the building had to be evacuated because a group of people was seen outside. The fire may have started in the kitchen area of the manor, but fire crews have not yet confirmed that information. It's not clear yet how much damage may have been done to the historic building, or if it will have to remain closed for any length of time.
News 5 will update this story as more information is available.
