Two fire pages came in just before 3:30 on July 10th. One was for a structure fire, and the other a bush fire. Crews arrived on scene at the structure page to find a pile of debris burning in proximity to a building, a boat and a utility trailer. The fire was quickly knocked down, while other crews searched for the bush fire. It was soon determined these were the same event, much to everyone’s relief. It is thought the fire started in amongst some paint cans and possibly some oil or solvent covered rags.
No one was home at the time, and neighbours and passersby called 911 and worked to contain the blaze and remove lumber from the proximity.
I understand this is another area with poor cell service, and the caller had some problems getting through to the 911 dispatchers.
