Garage destroyed by fire in Paradise Tuesday afternoon

A large garage in Paradise was destroyed by fire Tuesday afternoon and two homes were damaged during the blaze.

The fire broke out in the two-bay garage just before 4 p.m. and by the time firefighters reached the scene, the structure was fully engulfed in flames. Black smoke from the fire could be seen for several kilometers.

One neighbour told the Telegram that she had heard an explosion and when she went outside to investigate, the garage was in flames. Her house received some heat damage to the siding and the garage owner’s home was also damaged by the heat from the fire.

Firefighters had to shuttle water to the scene from a nearby hydrant as there were no hydrants near the home.

There were no injuries and the RNC is investigating the incident.
