Firefighters forced their way into a dog grooming business in the 3500-block of Quadra St. late Monday morning (June 11) after a nearby business owner spotted smoke billowing from the two-storey building.
The blaze was contained to the bathroom area of the business, which was closed when the fire was reported just before 11 a.m. The rest of the building was heavily damaged by smoke.
Though extinguished quickly, the fire left the business with an estimated $75,000 in damage. Two neighbouring businesses also sustained minor smoke damage.
No one was injured in the fire and the cause remains under investigation.
