There was a fire at the School District Office in Quesnel yesterday. (May 29)
Fire Chief Sylvain Gauthier says they were dispatched to the main office on Northstar Road at around 4 o’clock.
He says ” upon arrival by the duty officer he noticed that the fire was at the rear of the building and the fire was contained to the exterior of the building.”
Gauthier says someone at the neighboring Rec Centre called the fire department.
He says 28 members responded within five minutes and the fire was quickly put out.
While most of the damage was contained to the outside of the building, Gauthier says there was smoke damage inside.
He says the staff are working out of the downtown Helen Dixon Office for the time being.
Gauthier says the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
