A Sunday morning fire at a Nanaimo condo building has displaced half a dozen people and sparked an RCMP investigation.
Crews were called to a four-alarm fire at 7:20 a.m. Sunday on Mount Benson Street off of Terminal Avenue and found a fire in an upper unit of the building.
Ennis Mond, chief fire prevention officer with Nanaimo Fire Rescue, couldn’t say the cause of the fire but said the incident has become a joint investigation with Nanaimo RCMP. He said no one was hurt in the fire.
Residents of the building’s upper floor will be displaced and are working with the City of Nanaimo’s emergency social services.
