Fire destroys Wellington home and two vehicles Sunday night

Fire destroyed a home and two vehicles parked close Sunday night in Wellington. The home belonged to the Adnan Mustafa and Suhaila El Husein family, and contained the commercial kitchen for the co-owners of the popular Papa Ghanoush and Momma Hummus products. The Syrian refugees arrived to Prince Edward County in 2016. Their friends report on social media the couple was able to get out of the house safely and are now staying with family.

At approximately 8:30 p.m, Prince Edward County Fire & Rescue responded to the structure fire on Wellington Main Street. The rear of the structure was fully involved upon arrival of fire crews and had extended to two vehicles that were parked close to the building.

“Our firefighters did an amazing job containing this fire to a single property,” stated Fire Chief Chad Brown. “The building backs onto our Wellington fire station property so firefighters were able to get setup quickly and limit further property damage. Firefighters from three of our stations worked for several hours to extinguish this fire.”

There were no injuries resulting from the fire and the loss is estimated at $500,000. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
