Monday night’s power outage ended in tragedy at one Ottawa home. A house on River Road has been left unrecognizable, after a fallen candle caused the building to go up in flames. As there were no hydrants nearby, local firefighters were forced to use river water to control the huge Ottawa fire.\nJust after 9 p.m. on August 17, Ottawa Fire Services (OFS) responded to reports that a property on River Road was fully engulfed in flames.\nAccording to OFS, per CBC News, residents had lit multiple candles inside of the home, following a power outage caused by a strong storm in the area.\nEditor's Choice: Ontario Driver Thinks They're In 'Fast & Furious' & Causes Massive Crash (VIDEO)\nFirefighters were told that one of the candles had fallen over, triggering the huge blaze inside the property.\nUpon arriving at the scene, emergency responders found no hydrants outside the house. OFS explained that firefighters opted to pump water from a nearby river to “increase the supply of water required to tackle the flames.”\nTanker Vehicles also shuttled water from a hydrant in the area, OFS added.\nAlthough high winds threatened to spread the fire to nearby properties, crews were able to prevent the flames from advancing.\nResponders confirmed that all residents had safely evacuated the home upon their arrival.\nOttawa Fire is on scene battling a fully involved house fire at 330 River Road.
