2 hurt in Pickering house fire

Two people suffered injuries in a house fire in Pickering on Wednesday night.

The fire broke out about at about 9 p.m. at a house near Highway 7 and York Durham Townline.

The house is near to another house that burned down earlier this month. That house was discovered to have a confinement room built in the basement.

The fire was brought under control about two hours after it started.

There is no word yet on the cause.
