5th Ave SW in Chesley remains closed between 4th and 7th Streets after an overnight fire that’s destroyed at least one home and damaged those on neighbouring sides.

Chesley fire officials and South Bruce OPP confirm that three people remain unaccounted for at the home that was destroyed.

The investigation is continuing with assistance from the Office of the Fire Marshall and the OPP Forensic Identification Unit.

Its believed a family with children lived inside the home.
