November 16th structure fire
Yesterday morning Gabriola firefighters were woken at 5:36 am by a page that said structure fire. We responded and found a fully involved building – the fire was so dangerous that firefighters could not enter. We did what we could, but were not able to save the house. Once the fire was out, we were sad to find that a person had perished in the fire.
The photos here show what we saw soon after we arrived on scene.
We know you will share our sorrow at the loss of life in this fire. Perhaps this would be a good time to take a look at your own home to make sure that you are as safe as can be, and that you’ve done what you can to make sure that a house fire will not be in your future.
