Campbell River Fire crews are keeping busy, putting out fires just minutes after they’re reported.

At 1:18 pm today (Tuesday), firefighters were called to a blaze burning behind a downtown commercial building on 13th Avenue.

“911 received a call that there was a fire beside the old Rosebowl Restaurant. When we arrived, there was roughly a three-by-four fire burning,” Campbell River Fire’s David Lagos says.

He tells My Campbell River Now it appears someone’s ‘personal belongings’ caught ablaze. No injuries were reported, with the cause of the fire not known at this time.
