BEAVER BANK: Fire investigators continue to investigate a fire at a mobile home in the Woodbine Mobile Home Park in Beaver Bank on the afternoon of Jan. 29.
About 20 firefighters from Station 48 (Beaver Bank); Quint 9 (Metropolitan Sackville); Tanker 11 (Lower Sackville); Tanker 42 (Wellington); Station 45 (Fall River); Tanker 41 (Waverley); and Tact 12 responded to the scene, which came in shortly after lunch.
“There was heavy smoke on arrival,” said Gord West, District Chief for District 4.
He said there was a fair amount of fire damage and smoke damage throughout the mobile home.
No one was home at the time and there were no injuries.
The sounds of the sirens made for excitement in the quiet mobile home park and had residents and others coming by to check out what was going on.
At one point there was fire trucks for kilometres along Glenrise Drive.
Some units were being released by command from the scene about 30 minutes after the fire call came in.
The fire was located in the laundry area as firefighters battled the flames in an offensive strategy—in other words they battled it by going in the interior of the one story mobile home.
Fire investigators finished up at the scene about 5 p.m. It was left in the hands of security overnight.
Police said depending on the outcome of the fire investigators report, that will determine whether they do an investigation of their own.
West said the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
