TBFR responds to Garage and RV fire on Alberta St

TBFR responds to Garage and RV fire on Alberta St

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO ~~~  July 15, 2020 (LSN)  At 16:41 this afternoon Thunder Bay Fire Rescue crews were dispatched to a report of a garage fire in the area of Alberta St. First arriving fire crews encountered a large volume of fire and smoke at the rear of a residence at that location. A small garage, an RV trailer and a large portable tarp shelter were completely engulfed in flames by the time fire fighters were on scene.  Fire fighters worked to deploy attack lines from multiple pieces of apparatus to attempt to quickly knock the flames down to protect the adjacent residence and a neighboring home.

Multiple propane tanks connected to the RV were believed to be fueling the fast burning fire that quickly destroyed the three structures involved on the property. Fire fighters and a TBFR fire investigator remained on scene to complete a mop up of smouldering debris and to conduct an investigation into the cause of the blaze. At this time, the cause of the fire is undetermined and still under investigation. There were no injuries to the owner or occupants of the home.   

A total of five pumper/rescue trucks, one aerial ladder truck, a Command vehicle and a fire investigation unit responded to the incident.
