Neighbours say the suite was something of a party house according to the Victoria News. One guy was taken away in handcuffs.
Fire crews are on scene on Blanshard and Kings.
Don't worry folks, they will rebuild with modular housing soon enough :whyme:
Victoria Fire Battalion Chief Wayne Moody said crews believe the blaze was deliberately started and an investigation would be taking place to determine the cause...
it was only a few years ago a whole building burned down (the units facing hillside) and they chose not to investigate it, though most people were pretty sure it was deliberately set.. the tenants that were living in the unit at the time were in the process of being evicted.... now we have another fire, in a unit that seems to be a party unit.. and there are already talks about it being a suspicious fire..
though i will say the silver lining seems to be all people in the unit and surrounding units got out safely
21-units of supportive housing have been proposed for a strip of land along Hillside Avenue left vacant following a 2017 removal of eight fire-ravaged townhomes.
