Fire Crews Tackle Small Blaze At Learning Centre

Fire crews responding to a small blaze at the old Holy Trinity school on Burpee Avenue.

It is currently an early childhood learning centre

The call came just past 4:30 yesterday.

Acting Platoon Chief Marc Carey says flames were coming out of a basement window and door frame.

We are told the fire drill worked flawlessly and all the kids in the school evacuated safely.

The fire was quickly put out and the cause is being looked into.

Fire crews also putting out a large grass fire at the foot of Alexandra Street in the city's north end.

The fire was a threat to a nearby home -- the blaze did take down some telecommunication lines which disrupted some residents.

The cause is being looked into.
