House destroyed by fire on Nanaimo River Road

A fire destroyed a house on Nanaimo River Road on Thursday afternoon.

Extension Volunteer Fire Department crews are on scene in the 600 block of Nanaimo River Road near Steelhead Trail continuing to try to snuff out the fire. The house is a total loss, but no injuries have been reported.

Crews were called to the location a little after 4 p.m.

The house that burned down is on a large property and down near the riverbank, which caused access challenges for firefighters.
