Attended Structure Fire

Otter Point Fire Department was called to a mobile home fire this evening. When crews arrived they found a single wide mobile home with heavy smoke pushing out on all sides. Crews were able to enter the building and obtain a quick knock down of the fire. A big thank you to Sooke Fire, East Sooke Fire and Metchosin Fire who all sent crews to assist!
No one was at home at the time of the fire and no firefighters were injured. Unfortunately the home is a complete loss.
