Capital City Fire/Rescue

UPDATE: Structure fire Sprucewood Trailer Park

The cause of a structure fire that occurred on Tuesday December 22, 2015 is believed to be due to a woodstove. The fire marshals office conducted an investigation and the most likely cause was an old woodstove that was in use earlier in the day. Given the proximity of the chimney with the combustible wood roof assembly, it is believed the wood trusses reached its ignition temperature and the fire occurred in the space in between the ceiling and roof. tTe structure was not insured. Damage is estimated at approximately $10,000. Submitted by: Fire Marshal Daniel Jager
