We’re told part of that building was destroyed by fire Thursday night.
Fire chief Bill Leck says the owner had already started moving belongings into the home on the Varnumville Road.
The structure caught fire while he was pouring kerosene into a heater, and some of the fuel spilled.
The man made it out of the burning building safely, but the basement was badly damaged.
It appears that the rest of the home can be repaired.
