The Panorama Fire Department remain on the scene, following a single unit fire in Taynton Lodge in Panorama Wednesday morning.
Firefighters contained the flames to a single, vacant unit and it has since been extinguished.
“We had 14 firefighters and all four trucks respond to the call and the crew was able to keep the fire contained to the single unit,” says Columbia Valley Rural Fire and Rescue Service Chief, Jim Miller. “The quick action of our crew made the difference between an isolated fire and a potentially much larger situation. They did an outstanding job.”
The Lodge was evacuated as a precaution. The building has since been ventilated and occupants allowed to return to their suites.
No injuries came as a result of the fire. The Fire Department has turned its focus on the investigation to the exact cause of the incident.
