Fire causes $100,000 in damage to Victoria apartment

Apr 15 2012

A fire on the ninth floor of the View Towers apartment building Saturday morning has left two tenants without a home.

Black smoke was coming from the suite's balcony when firefighters arrived to 1147 Quadra St. just after the emergency call came in about 10:20 a.m.

Crews faced heavy smoke as they approached, but were able to quickly get the fire under control and limit it to one suite. The 18-storey building does not have a sprinkler system, according to the Victoria fire department.

No one suffered any injuries in the blaze, which caused $100,000 in estimated damages. Investigators are still determining the cause.
