The Fletcher House, an 1840 farmhouse that recently received a heritage designation in Brampton, was heavily damaged during a recent overnight fire.

When Brampton firefighters arrived on the scene late on April 25 they found the roof of the unoccupied building fully engulfed in flames. There were no injuries reported.

Located on McLaughlin Rd. near Flowertown Ave., the structure received heritage recognition in 2020 as the Fletcher family was one of the first to farm the land in what was then Chinguacousy Township.

Investigators are trying to determine the cause of the fire.
