Fire at seniors home sends one to hospital

Saanich fire crews responded to The Victorian on Feltham Road late Saturday night after a small fire broke out in a suite at the retirement home.

Firefighters arrived just before midnight to find staff had extinguished the fire, but smoke was lingering on the ground floor.

Crews cleared the smoke and the suite was searched to ensure the fire was out.

One occupant living in the suite was taken to hospital for smoke inhalation. The cause of the fire is still unknown.
