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.
