Windermere Fire Responds to Report of Explosion and Fire

Members of Windermere Fire Department responded to a structure fire last night, which left one person injured. 

“We received a report of an explosion and fire at approximately 8:30pm. There was minimal fire damage; however, the home did sustain extensive structural damage,” says Columbia Valley Rural Fire & Rescue Chief Drew Sinclair. 

11 firefighters and 3 apparatus responded to the call.  Firefighters isolated the utilities and remained on scene to check for any hidden fires.  One occupant of the home was taken to hospital by a family member with undetermined burns prior to the fire department’s arrival. 

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined and remains under investigation.
