Oyster River Fire Rescue responded to a fire on Sturgess Road (Black Creek) Saturday morning.

Sturgess Road fire contained

Smoke and heat damage to home

  • Dec. 1, 2015 8:00 p.m.

On Saturday Nov. 28 at 9:30 a.m. Oyster River Fire Rescue responded to a report of a house full of smoke.

Upon arrival at the scene crews found a fire in the basement of the home. The fire’s location made it difficult to access but the crews did a great job, utilizing their countless hours of training to get the upper hand on the fire. Though the fire was largely contained within 20 minutes of arrival, the department remained on scene for mop-up until 1 p.m. The house suffered heavy smoke and heat damage but for the most part remains structurally sound.

The cause of the fire is believed to have been a stove that may have been inadvertently turned on. Oyster River Fire Rescue would like to thank Courtenay Fire Department for sending out their tender to assist and to BCAS for looking after rehab for the fire crews.
