Mills says high winds spread flames to a neighbouring three-storey home on York Street.
Mills says the Charlotte Street home was destroyed and the York Street residence sustained significant smoke, fire, and water damage.
The Canadian Red Cross says three tenants were checked at hospital for minor smoke inhalation and later released.
One of the buildings had to be demolished by an excavator because it posed a threat of collapsing. A detached garage housing a car and boat was also destroyed.
