Firefighters tackle blaze in Royal Canadian Legion building

Firefighters got call of light smoke about 4:25 p.m.

Firefighters were called to the recently renovated Royal Canadian Legion late Friday afternoon.

The call came in at 4:24 p.m. with a report of light smoke in the southeast corner of the building, now home to medical businesses.

“Crews arrived to find some light smoke showing from the southeast corner of the building,” said Matt White, assistant to the deputy fire chief.

Fire-medics pulled down the ceiling inside and found a fire between the outer stucco and the building wall behind.

The fire was doused from the ground and the roof. Crews tore off the stucco to ensure no hot spots were left.

White said an investigator was there to probe the cause of the fire, which appeared to be contained at the corner of the building.
