Fire Chief Dave  Cunliffe said That in addition to the 23 partially constructed homes destroyed, another 12 occupied houses “adjacent to the fire” have been damaged. But “for the most part, it’s been windows shattered from the heat.”

The blaze also destroyed or damaged a number of vehicles and pieces of construction equipment that were nearby.

There were no reports of injuries. The Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office and Hamilton Police are investigating.
