One of the families displaced by the recent fire on Northview is still searching for their three beautiful cats. See their photos below. Have you seen “Ash” or “Coal” or “Max” ??

Most local residents will be well aware that a major fire on Sunday, March 12 either destroyed or damaged 32 maisonette townhouses off Northview Road, beside Eleanor Park. Luckily, all residents of these units were able to escape unharmed, in spite of high winds that fanned the flames. Anyone present at the scene that day will have witnessed the great work done by firefighters, the Salvation Army, and the Red Cross.

About 70 people are left without housing; we have heard several stories of other local residents offering help, and landlord Minto Properties also acted immediately to assist those affected. Many are being housed with neighbours and friends, some in guest suites at other Minto properties, and some in hotels with assistance from their household insurance. A few days after the fire, residents were able to access essential documents and car keys from their units with assistance from Minto’s fire restoration contractor, and the following week residents were able to access salvageable contents from their homes. Sadly, several pets either died in the fire, or are still missing. Details of missing pets are posted on Minto’s Facebook page.
Ottawa Fire Services will hold an Information Session for all local residents, at our community building:
Information will be provided as to the cause of this fire as well as general fire safety information, advice on how to prevent fires and what do to when you discover a fire.
Our Annual Winter Carnival took place last Saturday, February 11 at Fisher Heights Park, and it was terrific to see so many friendly faces from around the Fisher Heights community come out and enjoy themselves. The weather was perfect for an afternoon of skating, hockey, snowshoeing, sled racing and roasting marshmallows.
We’d like to thank the volunteers and sponsors who made the afternoon so enjoyable. Without tremendous community partners like these, our events wouldn’t be possible:
Starbucks (1350 Baseline Rd) at Loblaws Centre for donating coffee and hot chocolate;
P-Kom Promotional Specialties for donating a pair of Sens hockey tickets;
Councillor Keith Egli for donating popcorn and handing out goodies;
Sessila Academy for donating craft materials and looking after our indoor craft centre;
Here’s a little visual recap of the afternoon. And don’t forget to submit your email and subscribe to our website so you can stay up to date on important information regarding news and events in the community for the upcoming year.
