West Fernie Structure Fire

On Sunday, January 8 at 1:50pm  Fernie Fire Rescue responded to a structure fire at a former mechanic shop in West Fernie.

The complex fire required a full response from Fernie Fire Rescue as well as mutual aid from the Hosmer Fire Department, and support from BC Ambulance and City of Fernie Public Works.

No one was injured in the fire and crews were able to protect nearby homes and save a substantial amount of the equipment and tools stored on the property.
