Campbell River fire crews responded to a report of a roof fire involving a two-storey home in the 3900 block of South Island Highway at 12:31 a.m. on Thursday.
“When crews arrived they found the entire roof of the home involved with fire,” says deputy fire chief Chris Vrabel. “With the roof burning, for safety reasons, crews fought the fire from the outside. Fire fighters were able to limit damage to the roof line and upper floor, while the lower floor and its contents were saved.”
No injuries were reported, but four occupants were displaced and are receiving shelter through the local Emergency Social Services agency. Fire fighters from both fire stations were required to respond to the call.
The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
