(Part of Abbott Street between Granite Ridge and Iber was closed earlier this evening, as emergency vehicles responded to a fire on Talltree Crescent. A press release from Ottawa Fire Services is included below. Based on the number of fire trucks on scene, it’s likely that the fire spread beyond the barbecue.)
