A blaze has destroyed a family home in the north end of the city.
Campbell River Fire Chief Ian Baikie says crews arrived on scene on Vallejo Road Friday afternoon at around 2:00 PM to find the home engulfed in flames.
“Upon arrival, we found fire in the rear of the building, coming out of the windows. Crews made entry using hose-lines, and using those hose-lines, extinguished the fire.”
A family of eight has been displaced. Baikie says the family is insured, but damage to the property is extensive and it’s possible the house could be a write-off.
