Damage estimate $150,000 in Saanich house fire
Dec 19 2011
A Saanich family won’t be returning home for a while after a Sunday afternoon fire that caused considerable damage to their house.
Firefighters got the call just minutes before 1 p.m. and, fortunately, no one was home when they arrived on scene in the 3700 block of Savannah Avenue.
A neighbour had called in the fire, which was reported to have started in the kitchen and ended up causing an estimated $150,000 in damages.
Investigators were on scene once the blaze was extinguished, but the cause of the fire had yet to be determined Sunday evening.
