No injuries from early morning house fire in Victoria

The aftermath of an early-morning chimney on Quadra Street on Nov. 3.

Victoria Fire crews have contained a house fire on Quadra Street that saw flames rise 30 feet in the air above the home.

The call came in for a chimney fire at 1:51 a.m. Friday morning and when firefighters arrived at 3028 Quadra Street, they saw flames coming from the roof.

The first arriving engine battled the blaze from outside the building.

When another fire crew arrived, they entered the home to tear down the ceilings to get to the fire that was established in the attic and walls.

All occupants of the building were able to get out safely and no injuries are reported.

Emergency Social Services was on scene to help a family of two with a pet that lived in the home’s basement and did not have a place to stay for the night.

The owners of the home, who have a 10-month-old child, had a place to stay and did not require housing.

The fire was contained in the attic and the room where the fire began, but water damage is reported in the suite below.

Victoria Fire says the damage is estimated to be around $250,000.

It is not known what caused the blaze, which is under investigation.
