Black smoke billowed into the sky and could be seen from as far away as Southampton (8km) as a home in Port Elgin on Eastwood Drive went up in flames.

Saugeen Shores Fire Department responded within minutes today (Tuesday, June 12) but the structure was complete engulfed in flames when they arrived.

According to sources, there was no one home at the time and the cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
