Fire destroys Cedar Creek mobile home

A residence in the Cedar Creek Mobile Home Park on Shawnigan-Mill Bay Road sustained extensive damage during an early-morning fire Tuesday.

The Mill Bay Fire Department responded to the call just after 2 a.m.

When fire crews arrived, flames were shooting up through the roof of an addition, said Lt. Chris McInerney.

"The smoke was pouring out everywhere else,'' he added.

"It started off in the addition and pretty well moved through the main part.''

Occupants of the residence managed to get out in time without injury.

No other structures in the vicinity were damaged.

"There was a couple of trees that blocked the heat from the trailers,'' said McInerney.

Mill Bay responded with four trucks and two more came from the Shawnigan Lake Fire Department to assist.

Crews stayed on the scene for several hours, including mop-up, returning to the hall after 6:15 a.m. so it was a long night for the firefighters.

Cause of the fire is still under investigation.
