Plains Road remains closed in both directions in the Aldershot area of Burlington while the Fire Marshal’s Office investigates a suspicious early morning blaze that caused an estimated $850,000 in damage.

Burlington Fire sent more than half a dozen emergency vehicles to battle the residential fire, with crews arriving just before 3:30 a.m.

The cause of the fire has not been determined but the Fire Marshal’s Office is treating the blaze as a possible arson.

The home was vacant and there were no injuries reported.

Halton Police say Plains Road East will be shut down in both directions between Shadeland Avenue and Filmandale Road until further notice.
