Digby firefighters stopped an electrical fire from spreading beyond one dwelling on First Avenue.
Renters in the building belonging to Wayne Lewis remember hearing a pop some time after 5 p.m. Tuesday, June 26. They thought nothing of it until smoke filled the house and they called 911.
Digby fire chief Robert Morgan says faulty wiring started the fire.
Fire fighters in breathing apparatus quickly extinguished the fire. Fire trucks had traffic blocked on First Avenue for about an hour.
