Crews were on site on Griffiths Rd. from around 10:30 p.m. to 12:45 a.m., with one truck staying onsite overnight to ensure the fire wasn’t rekindled.

According to the fire department, the occupants were able to escape and Emergency Support Services was onsite to assist them. There were no significant injuries during the incident.

There were 18 fire fighters who responded in two trucks and two command vehicles.

The first engine to arrive began a defensive strategy to protect exposures, such as neighbouring buildings and vehicles. The other truck established a water supply and attacked the fire.
