A fully engulfed shed fire turned out to be just outside of the Armstrong Spallumcheen Fire Department’s fire protection area.
But the fire wasn’t going to extinguish itself, so crews got to work snuffing the blaze.
Fire Chief Ian Cummings said the blaze was on the Harris Indian Reserve across from Tolko on Pineridge Road in Spallumcheen.
The fire department received the call around 1:20 a.m. Wednesday, April 26. The fire department responded with 20 firefighters, a fire engine, three tenders and a rescue vehicle.
Cummings noted the area has no fire protection.
“It was fully involved when we got there and we extinguished it, we just kept it from getting into the trees,” Cummings said Wednesday afternoon.
The shed is a total loss, and the cause of the fire is unclear at this point.
Cummings said no one was around at the time of the blaze, and there were no injuries.
The fire response lasted about an hour.
