SPRINGDALE  A fire in Springdale Wednesday night destroyed the community’s Home Hardware and Bank of Montreal.

A fire in Springdale Wednesday night destroyed the town's Home Hardware and Bank of Montreal.

The Springdale Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Springdale Fire Department responded to reports of a fire at the Home Hardware building at 10:45 p.m.

The Springdale and King’s Point fire departments attempted to put out the fire and protect surrounding homes. However, the Home Hardware building became engulfed in flames and the fire spread to the warehouse and the connected Bank of Montreal.

All the buildings in the connected commercial strip were incinerated. The exteriors of some homes were damaged due to the extreme heat of the fire.

 There were no injuries and the fire isn’t believed to be suspicious in nature.

Further investigation on the cause of the fire is ongoing.

Organizations: Springdale Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Springdale Fire Department, Home Hardward Bank of Montreal

    Because this fire also engulfed a bank, which could jeopardize the resident's ability to get financial transactions done, I believe that arson is suspected. In the future, I hope that Springdale businesses are equipped with both sprinklers and ground fault circuit interrupters.
