Motel Fire on the West Side

A fire this morning at a motel on Manawoganish Road. Officials responded to the call around 8:30am that there was smoke issuing from the second floor of the building.

When they arrived they found a verandah on fire--the blaze was threatening to spread to the inside of the motel. They quickly knocked it down. Only a couple of units in the 19-unit motel were occupied at the time of the blaze.

The fire department also responded to a call on Carmarthen Street around 9pm--a smoke alarm was going off in the building, but no one was at home. Fire officials broke into the home but there was no damage.
