Serious fire damages vehicles at Havelock fire station
A firefighter was treated for smoke inhalation and 5 vehicles were damaged in the fire
Gerald Jones, chief of the Petitcodiac fire department, says officials were alerted Thursday, just before 11:30 am, when a passer-by noticed smoke coming from the building.
Firefighters from Petitcodiac, Salisbury, Elgin, Penobsquis and Riverview responded to the call to assist the Havelock crew.
Jones says one firefighter was treated for smoke inhalation during the fire, which appears to have started in one of the trucks.
Jones says the fire is now contained, but firefighters remain on the scene to deal with hotspots.
He says the four-bay garage was badly scorched and five vehicles received extensive damage.
Between 40 and 50 firefighters from surrounding areas responded to the fire, which is now under investigation by RCMP and fire officials.
