Fire breaks out at Campbell River car dealership, no injuries

Campbell River fire department says there are no injuries after a blaze at the Hyundai dealership in Campbell River.

Fire chief Thomas Doherty says fire crews were called to the scene for a vehicle fire at 12:49 p.m. He says crews were met with heavy black smoke as the fire was inside the dealership’s workshop.

“We were able to get our hose lines on very quickly and get a knockdown, containing the fire in the shop area,” said Doherty.

He says the damage is significant in the shop area, but a firewall between the workshop and the showroom prevented the fire from spreading further.
