Witness statement name:
Amy George, Age 36, Homeowner

Witness statement:
The fire happened just after our home renovation. I was sleeping and all of a sudden the smoke alarms started going off in the house! I ran outside and called 9-1-1. When I looked up at my house, the whole top floor was engulfed in flames!
We recently had a new exhaust fan installed in the second floor washroom. At the same time, the contractor installed a new walk-in closet with a bunch of new shelving in my second-floor master bedroom. I wonder if this has anything to do with the light in my walk-in closet not working very well. When I turned it on, it often seemed to trip the breaker.
