UPDATE: None injured in Tsawout First Nation motorhome fire

No one was injured in a Class-A motorhome fire that sparked on the territory of the Tsawout First Nation on Friday evening.

Trucks and firefighters from both Central Saanich and Sidney Fire responded to the blaze, which was reported at approximately 5 p.m. on March 4.

Initially, it was believed that crews were headed to a residential structure fire just off Mount Newton Cross Road, however, when firefighters arrived they found a motorhome fully engulfed in flames.

Prior to the arrival of fire crews, the owners of the motorhome were able to move another nearby RV out of harm’s way before the flames spread.

“It was near a workshop with welding equipment, propane tanks, lots of tools, oxygen tanks that were exposed to heat as well as drums of fuel potentially or other hazardous material so we shifted for the safety of our crew and just logged water on from a distance,” Central Saanich Fire said.

At this time, authorities have not been able to determine the cause of the fire.

Central Saanich Fire did confirm that no one was injured as a result of the blaze.
