Campbell River firefighters attend house fire

Firefighters are still on the scene mopping up a house fire on Nunns Road.

They were called out this morning around 10 a.m. and had to deal with a persistent burn in the attic of a single story home.

At one point it appeared firefighters were pulled out so that a BC Hydro crew could turn the power off to a transformer that had caught fire and was sparking periodically.

A transformer caught fire and another sparked dramatically, requiring a BC Hydro crew to cut power.


One end of the ground floor interior had already been severely damaged by the fire.

Flames continued to flare up periodically on the ground floor.
