At least a dozen people lost their homes in a three-alarm blaze that destroyed part of a stacked townhouse development in Barrhaven this morning.
Several others say they are grateful to have escaped with their lives.
Multiple 911 calls came in at 8:28 a.m. reporting flames at 601 Chapman Mills Dr.
It was noon before the fire was deemed under control.
Support agencies assisted about 40 residents.
