No one was injured after a commercial building in Sidney went up in flames, putting firefighters to work into the wee hours of Sunday morning.

The Sidney Fire Department took to Twitter around 3 a.m., saying the fire broke out at a commercial structure on Galaran Road but was mainly contained to one room.

“A quick response and aggressive attack contained the fire largely to the room of origin. No injuries reported,” according to Sidney Fire in the tweet.

A photo posted to social media shows fire crews on scene in a laneway between the Nicholson Manufacturing building and the new Amazon warehouse. The laneway connects Galaran Road to Beacon Avenue West.

Sidney Fire says crews from the Central Saanich and North Saanich fire departments also attended the call, along with Sidney RCMP and paramedics from BC Ambulance Service.

Fire officials say the cause of the blaze is currently under investigation. CHEK News has reached out to Sidney Fire and will update this story if more information becomes available.
