Garage fire

The Campbell River Fire Department was not taking chances on New Year’s Day

The Campbell River Fire Department was not taking chances on New Year’s Day when a fire was reported in a detached garage close to a residence in the 3800 block of Castle Drive.

A two-station response was initiated at 3: 24 p.m. including three engines and 26 personnel. Fire Chief Dean Spry believes the fire may have started from sparks from a grinder. Damage to the interior of the building was “significant.”
