(THUNDER BAY. ON) – There was a fire that was ignited on a pile of wood between two garages in a south end back alley.
Witnesses on the scene in the 400 block of Prince Arthur Blvd told TRCCTB.COM that a neighbour told them that a person was seen messing around with the wood, and then fled the scene when the fire ignited.
The fire quickly spread to two garages, one garage was under control quickly but the second kept growing. More fire trucks ended up responding to the scene, witnesses counted 5.
Thunder Bay Hydro cut power to the neighbourhood, we believe it is because of the abundance of power lines that are in the area above the garage that was burning.
4 Pumper trucks and an aerial ladder were seen battling the blaze. A rough head count of 18 fire fighters were noted by witnesses.
Thunder Bay Police Service was also on the scene, assisting keeping people from getting too close to the scene.
We will updates this article as the sitatuoob develops as the fire is still ongoing. Video below this advertisement.
