Damage is estimated at $850,000 after a house fire in Waterloo, and that figure could rise. 

Fire crews were called to Faraday Court on February 9, as flames were spotted shooting out of a home's second floor window and its roof. 

Luckily, none of the home's residents or any firefighters were injured. 

The Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal launched an investigation and determined the blaze was accidental and caused by a fireplace. 

The preliminary damage estimate may increase as the homeowner's insurance company assesses the property.
