It was an early start for members of the Windermere Fire Department as they responded to a structure fire call just after 5 a.m. Monday, December 10th.
“When we arrived on scene, there was a fully involved fire in a detached garage,” explains Columbia Valley Fire and Rescue Deputy Chief Drew Sinclair. “Our firefighters did a great job of keeping the fire isolated to the garage so it didn’t spread to the nearby home or other structures.”
Seven firefighters and two pieces of apparatus responded to the blaze, along with support from BC Hydro, the RCMP and BC Ambulance Service. There were no injuries.
The garage is a total loss and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
