Firefighters put out structure fire on Dockside Way in Nanaimo

Incident happened just after 5 p.m. in detached building close to house

Nanaimo Fire Rescue crews extinguished a structure fire on Dockside Way on Sunday evening.

The four-alarm fire happened just after 5 p.m. in the 2100 block of Dockside Way off of Jingle Pot Road.

Nanaimo Fire Rescue assistant chief Brad Wood said it was a detached building, a workshop, that caught fire.

“It was fully involved when crews got on scene; they knocked it down quickly,” he said. “No injuries or anything like that reported. [There’s] minor damage to the main house, just to the one side.”

Wood said Nanaimo Fire Rescue’s fire loss prevention division is on scene now investigating the cause of the fire.
