Images Investigators in Kingston, Ontario blame a beaver for a fire that caused more than $150,000 damage to a cottage and outbuilding this week. “It chewed through one of these trees, the tree fell on one of these high voltage lines, shorting the line,” said South Frontenac Fire Chief Rick Chesebrough. The power was conducted through the tree into the ground, igniting leaves and dry brush.
